Join us for the July Katie's Krops Dinner & Bring the Tissues

Please join us on Thursday, July 27th for what will be a bittersweet Katie's Krops Dinner. Seven years ago a group of middle school students came together for the vey first Katie's Krops Dinner when the only full time soup kitchen in their community shut their doors. Over the course of seven years this amazing group of volunteers have fed thousands of guests a hot and healthy meal. They have worked in the gardens growing the food they served and worked in the kitchen preparing delcious and healthy meals. On Thursday, July 27th we will celebrate this extra special group of volunteers as they prepare to leave for college. This will be the last dinner that they prepare together (fingers cross they join us on their school breaks).

We hope you will come join us and celebrate this amazing group of volunteers and send Katie off to College of Charleston with a hug. Doors to the Fellowship Hall will open at 5:30pm and dinner will be served at 6pm. The dinner is held at Summerville Baptist Church located at 417 Central Avenue in Summerville, South Carolina. The dinner is always free and everyone is welcome at our dinner table.

And we are very please to share the Katie's Krops Dinners will continue on for years to come! Thank you to all of our youth volunteers who make every dinner possible.
