Fighting For
A More Generous

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 from school as part of the Bonnie Plants Third 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 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’s Krops now has 100 gardens growing across the country and has donated thousands and thousands of pounds of fresh produce to people in need. The mission of Katie’s Krops is to empower youth 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.

      15 years ago, a not so tiny cabbage changed my life forever! On this day, I donated my cabbage to Tri County Family Ministries, where I would come back and serve my cabbage to 275 guests of the soup kitchen. 15 years ago, I began down a path of youth service, fighting to end hunger. I can’t imagine my life any other way and I am so grateful to everything that led me to where I am today. I am so grateful to my friends at @fields2families for helping me find the perfect home for my cabbage, Mrs. Sue for insisting I come back to serve my cabbage and see the impact it will make, @neighborstogethersc for their incredible work in the community & @bonnieplants for their Third Grade Cabbage Program that started it all 💚

      We are searching for new Katie's Krops Dinner volunteers!
Help us feed our neighbors facing challenging times at our Katie's Krops Dinners. This opportunity is open to high school students who can arrive at the kitchen between 1:30 to 2:30 pm on Thursdays. Our dinners are best suited for youth volunteers who are self-starting, outgoing, dependable, and comfortable in a kitchen setting.
If you are interested in becoming a dinner volunteer, please email with your full name, phone number, and availability. We ask that high school students email directly rather than having a parent/adult email for them. #volunteer #giveback #youthservice #summervillesc
