Kids in The Kitchen Updates!
Kids In The Kitchen is back for the 2016-2017 year! The committee is excited to continue with impacting local youth and families to adopt healthy eating habits. We will continue with our nutritional lessons at the Boys and Girls Club in Guadalupe and we are excited to announce we will be adding an additional club in Chandler!
The lessons address portion sizes, well-rounded meals, reading nutrition labels, choosing healthy snacks… it’s amazing how much the kids learn and retain by the end of the year at the Little Chef celebration!
This year with the addition of branches, more families will be able to participate at the Little Chef event with putting together healthy, affordable pre-made meals to take home and save for later (last year we also gave away goody bags including a crockpot!).
Members: keep an eye out on the member calendar for volunteer shifts so you can join in on the fun!
The Junior League of Phoenix is a network of empowered female civic leaders working with community partners to address and solve pressing issues like food insecurity/food access and with programs addressing nutrition and obesity. We’re part of an international network of 291 Leagues comprised of over 150,000 women, in Canada, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S., engaged in similar work in their own communities. This provides us with a unique and powerful depth of knowledge and resourcefulness to bring about the changes we strive to accomplish.
