11th Anniversary of the Katie’s Krops Dinner – October 14th

On October 14th, we will celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Katie’s Krops Dinner! It has been the most fantastic journey that started when I was in middle school and the only full-time soup kitchen in Summerville I supporting shuttered. Never could I have imagined that day in middle school what I would be creating and the number of people we would help feed in our community.

In those 11 years, I have graduated high school, graduated college, faced a pandemic, created a second family who I adore of the people who attend the dinners, filmed a segment for Disney Channel and a feature-length documentary The Starfish Throwers highlighting our work at the dinners, had the honor of working with the most amazing chefs who want to give back to the community, and have been blessed to have the very best volunteers by my side. None of this would have been possible without the support of our partners at Summerville Baptist, who believed a decade ago that a small group of children could change the world one meal at a time.

This year there will be no big outward celebration as we are stretched very thin meeting the current need of our community but please know I am celebrating in my heart. Thank you for your support, your kindness, and for believing in me for 11 years.

Come out and join us on Thursday, October 11th at 4:30 for our to-go anniversary dinner at Summerville Baptist Church at 417 Central Avenue in Summerville. The menu is meatloaf with gravy, mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, tossed green salad, fresh bread, and desserts. If you are ill, in quarantine, or do not have transportation and reside in Summerville, we will make every effort to deliver meals to you. Please email Katie@KatiesKrops.com by Tuesday, October 12th, with your full name, complete address, phone number, and the number of meals needed.
