We are thrilled to announce that our 2021 Katie’s Krops Grower Search is officially open!
In 2021 we will welcome 75 new Katie’s Krops Growers to our growing family! This is a record new number of Growers. Children ages 7 to 16 in the United States are eligible to apply to become Katie’s Krops Growers and start a vegetable garden in their communities where the whole harvest is used to alleviate food insecurity. Youth who are selected to become Katie’s Krops Growers will receive an all-inclusive grower box, complete with everything necessary for kids to start their own garden. Growers are eligible for funds to continue to grow year after year, making their gardens and their projects sustainable.
To date, young Katie’s Krops Growers have donated over 450,000 pounds of fresh produce to help individuals and families struggle with food insecurity and hunger across the country and Africa. The application period opens today, November 1st, and youth will have until December 31st to complete and mail in the application. Early applications are encouraged and will be weighted heavily in the decision process. Applications can be found here, www.KatiesKrops.com/apply.
