Thank you BI-LO & BI-LO Shoppers for Helping to Grow the Dream

When I was nine-years-old, I had a dream that grew from a 40-pound cabbage. I dreamed that I could grow an end to hunger, one vegetable garden at a time.  With hard work, dedication, and the support of youth across the country, this dream has grown seedling by seedling, harvest by harvest, garden by garden.

This January, my friends at BI-LO partnered with us to further my dream. At every BI-LO store in the the country, shoppers were asked if they would like to support the dream that kids can grow a healthy end to hunger. And support they did!!!

At our February Katie's Krops Dinner a check was presented to the Katie's Krops growing family for an amazing $66,000! We are honored and humbled. Thank you for your generosity. These funds will be used to grow and to sustainan the dream that kids can grow a healthy end to hunger. Our current young growers will be able to continue to grow and expand their gardens. We also look forward to welcoming new growers to the Katie's Krops family this spring.

To everyone at BI-LO, I am so grateful to have your support. You are empowering kids across our country to learn how to grow and provide healthy food to the families and individuals that are struggling with hunger.

To everyone who made a donation to our cause this January at their local BI-LO store, We want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Together, we are creating a bountiful harvest provided to those who need it most.
