Join Us As We Celebrate The 3 Year Anniversary of the Katie’s Krops Dinner
Three years ago, our Founder, Katie, who at the time was only 12-years-old, attempted to make a delivery of fresh produce from her Katie’s Krops Gardens to the only full-time soup kitchen in Summerville. She found a note on the door which read that due to financial issues, the soup kitchen had to shut their doors. Knowing how many people in our community needed access to free, healthy meals, Katie, along with the support of her friends, teachers, parents and the head of food services at her school, created ‘The Katie’s Krops Dinner,’ a garden to table dinner for anyone in need of a healthy meal.
Over the course of three years, these dedicated young volunteers, who themselves prepare, cook and serve every meal, have provided a healthy and free meal to thousands of individuals in need in our community. On average now, the young Katie’s Krops Crew serves 120 people per dinner. Every meal is based on the harvest from the Katie’s Krops gardens and is healthy, well balanced and free and everyone is always welcome to join us at the Katie’s Krops Dinner table!
Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 22nd at Summerville Baptist Church as we celebrate the three year anniversary of the Katie’s Krops Dinner. In addition to a free, healthy, garden to table dinner, we will host a children’s book giveaway and a cake walk. Summerville Baptist is located at 417 Central Avenue in Summerville, South Carolina.
Join us as we celebrate how youth in our community have come together to create a positive change through one garden, one dinner, and one healthy meal at a time.
