Dive in and help us end hunger!
The first annual Katie’s Krops Dive In To End Hunger event last summer was a great success and accomplished our goal to build the fence around the flagship garden to prevent the deer from eating our crops. Many of our supporters urged us to continue this event yearly as a great way to encourage youth to continue supporting their community. We will use this year’s funds to sustain all 80 of the Katie’s Krops gardens across the United States, continue to empower kids to find a healthy way to end hunger, and continue to hold our monthly Katie’s Krops Dinner for our community in need.
The Second Annual Dive in to End Hunger will be held on Tuesday, July 21st at Pine Forest Country Club in Summerville, South Carolina from 4 to 7pm.

Katie's Krops....Growing a dream!
The idea for Katie’s Krops began with a 9 year old girl and a 40 pound cabbage. In 2008 Katie brought home a tiny cabbage seedling home from school as part of the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program. She tended to her cabbage and cared for it until it grew to an amazing 40 pounds. Knowing her cabbage was special she donated to a soup kitchen where it helped to feed over 275 people. Moved by the experience of seeing how many people could benefit from the donation of fresh produce to soup kitchens, Katie decided to start vegetable gardens and donate the harvest to help feed people in need.
Katie now has numerous gardens and has donated thousands of pounds of fresh produce to organizations that help people in need. The mission of Katie's Krops is to start and maintain vegetable gardens of all sizes and donate the harvest to help feed people in need, as well as to assist and inspire others to do the same. The problem of hunger is real, Katie's Krops mission is simple, we all can help because...
It only takes a seedling!
