Andrea Wasko and Meaghan Gilbert are the people behind the Quick Pickle Kit, which they call “the DIY pickling kit for people on a journey” — I love that. They started the company in 1996 with a couple goals. One, they wanted to give people a healthy and stress-free way to pickle fresh produce. Andrea’s mother was a pickler and would send jars of them to Andrea as a taste of home. And secondly, they wanted to give back to their community. Philanthropy is a massive reason the Quick Pickle Kit exists. Andrea and Meghan employ adults with disabilities and donate a portion of every sale to nonprofits — and they always have. Listen in as they talk about their backgrounds, their inspiration, and their passion for a crunchy pickle.
