Junior League of Jacksonville continues our commitment to bettering the lives of Northeast Florida’s children by championing “Kids in the Kitchen.” Kids in the Kitchen is an initiative of the Association for Junior Leagues International and a concerted effort to reverse the national crises of childhood obesity and poor nutrition.
Kids in the Kitchen takes place in public schools and recreation centers throughout our community. Junior League of Jacksonville members design and deliver fun, interactive curriculum to inform children (and consequently, their parents) about nutrition and healthy habits. They conduct cooking class, provide recipes for healthy eating and offer tips for the whole family. Learn more on the Kids in the Kitchen website.
Sessions are currently coordinated in partnership with the following community organizations and initiatives:
* Sanctuary on 8th Street
* Duval County Public Schools
We are currently evaluating new opportunities to expand our KITK curriculum to other community organizations.
