May 26th Katie’s Krops Dinner

Join us for our next Katie’s Krops To-Go Dinner on Thursday, May 26th. Our dinner service will start at 4:30 pm and Summerville Baptist Church, 417 Central Avenue, Summerville, South Carolina. We will continue to drive-up to-go style. We kindly ask that you follow the guidance of our parking lot volunteers to keep traffic flowing and maintain safety for guests and volunteers.

The dinner is always free. Our goal is to ensure that our neighbors in need have access to the healthy meals they need. We serve between 550 and 600 meals per dinner.

With the cost of everything rising, we see an influx of new people who need assistance. When school lets out for the summer we anticipate many more families needing assistance. Our cost per dinner has increased 36%. We would greatly appreciate your support to be able to continue to serve our community. If you would like to sponsor a dinner, purchase to-go boxes, or make a donation of any size, we would be extremely grateful. Feel free to contact Katie@KatiesKrops.com.

A Record-Breaking Year!

We have exciting news to share! Despite all of the obstacles and challenges our Growers faced in 2021, we had a record-breaking year! Our youth Growers across the country donated an incredible 49,457 pounds of fresh produce to families and individuals facing hunger and food insecurity. Growing in their backyard, schools, churches, to plots in community gardens, these children are growing a better tomorrow while learning essential life skills. We are so incredibly proud!

Grow In The Best Soil While Helping Us End Hunger

If you have volunteered in our garden when we are amending our garden beds, you will know how much we love the BigYellowBags of soil3 compost. Our production has increased dramatically with the use of the BigYellowBags. We are so excited to partner with our friends Soil3 to bring our supporters a discount while at the same time supporting our efforts!

Soil³ Compost in BigYellowBags is on sale for $30 off through the end of February! But . . . we have an exclusive code to get you an extra $5 off. That’s $35 off every bag! Plus, Katie’s Krops earns money for every bag sold with our code.


Be sure to use code KatiesKrops2022 when you order online https://shop.soil3.com/discount/KatiesKrops2022

Delivery is included!

Soil3 is OMRI Listed for certified organic gardening.

Soil3 provides enough nutrients for season-long growing. No need to apply additional fertilizer.

Another great factor is the ability of Soil3 to retain moisture in sandy soils. With four times the water retention of regular soil, drought and water restrictions will not be as damaging to gardens or lawns.
