A big thank you to our friends at University of South Carolina Press, Bonnie Plants and First Fruits Market of Washington for making this book possible.
Four 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 shut down. 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 four years, our dedicated young volunteers, who themselves prepare, cook, and serve every meal under the direction of Head Chef Herman McNeill and Cory Miller, have provided a healthy and free meal to thousands of individuals in need in our community. Every Katie's Krops Dinner is based on the harvest from the gardens and is healthy, well balanced, and free. Everyone is always welcome at the Katie's Krops Dinner table!
On Monday, October 27, at 6:00 p.m. at Summerville Baptist Church, we will be celebrating the fourth anniversary of the Katie's Krops Dinner. Summerville Baptist Church is located at 417 Central Avenue in Summerville, South Carolina. We anticipate a large number of guests to join us for this dinner celebration. To secure a seat, please arrive prior to 6pm. Our doors will open at 5:30pm.
Please join us as we celebrate how youth in our community have come together to create a positive change through one garden, one harvest, and one dinner at a time!
On Monday, September 15th our young volunteers will gather the harvest from the Katie's Krops gardens and take to the kitchen to prepare a hot, healthy and free dinner.

The menu for the dinner is always based on the harvest from our gardens. Every meal is prepared and served by our young Katie's Krops Crew under the director of Head Chef, Herman McNeill. Please help us end hunger in the Lowcountry by sharing our efforts with friends and families that are facing difficult times. Everyone is welcome at the Katie's Krops Dinner table.
