Kids in the Kitchen is a hands-on program series led by League members with the primary goal of teaching children about nutrition and making healthy food choices. The program is more than fifteen years old and is a staple of Junior Leagues worldwide. What began as a response to the growing epidemic of childhood obesity, the Kids in the Kitchen program has broadened its scope significantly in the past several years to include activities that address hunger, fitness, life skills, and even gardening!
The Junior League of Owensboro’s Kids in the Kitchen events are currently held inside the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, where we have a demonstration kitchen specifically for this program. During the summer months, we can connect with many local children through the day camp programs, and we schedule our events to coincide with the summer feeding program.
We also have a program booth at several community events, including the Healthpark 5K/10K, WNIN Kids Fest, and Owensboro’s annual Walk for Apraxia. If you would like to have Kids in the Kitchen set up a booth at your event, please contact us!f
