The Junior League of Owensboro challenges women to greatness through volunteering, friendship, and commitment to improving our Owensboro-Daviess County community.

Community Impact

Healthy Owensboro Initiative
League members are promoting an exciting initiative! Healthy Owensboro is a project that includes feeding elementary-aged children through a "back-pack on the weekends" program, hosting Kids in the Kitchen events at the Museum of Science and History throughout the summer, hosting Kids in the Kitchen activities at community centers and events, and more!  You can help support this community initiative to build a healthier community by participating in the 5K held in September, annually.

Where does our food come from? Teaching about good health with a very fun, interactive project that allows our kids to get their hands dirty! 

Kids in the Kitchen
Throughout the year JLO works with many community organizations and restaurants to provide a fun, educational, hands-on event called Kids in the Kitchen. This FREE event is a fun way to learn about healthy eating choices and that can last a lifetime. read more
