Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #165976

Grant Description

In-kind grants valued at $500 to USA youth between the ages of 9 and 16 for materials to start local vegetable gardens. Funding is intended to help young people start and maintain vegetable gardens of all sizes and donate the harvest to help feed people in need. Applications for all types of vegetable gardens, such as a container garden in a city, or a vegetable garden located in a neighborhood or at a school, will be considered.

The winners will be awarded a gift card to a garden center in their area (up to $500), support from Katie’s Krops, and a digital camera to document the garden and the harvest. In addition to grant materials, winners will be eligible to attend the all-expenses-paid Katie's Krops Summer Camp in Pelion, South Carolina, thanks to the generous support of WP Rawl.

Katie's Krops also awards a yearly scholarship for higher education to the grantee of the year. All grantees that complete all grant requirements are eligible for funds to continue to grow, year after year, thereby creating a sustainable solution to hunger in their community.

Grantee(s) must donate the entire harvest from the garden to people in need in their community. This may be done through direct donations to families in need or by donating the harvest to soup kitchens or organizations that feed the needy.

As an example, the harvest can be used to support classmates in need, homeless shelters, food banks, or for neighbors in need.
