Charged with a mission of improving our community through the effective action of trained women and a vision to challenge women to greatness through volunteering, compassion, friendship, and commitment to improving our community, Junior League of Owensboro members are active in a variety of local community projects.
Currently, League members operate a Healthy Owensboro Initiative which promotes healthy eating and active lifestyle choices in the community – especially among children.
The Healthy Owensboro Initiative continues to develop, but current activities include:
- Our Kids in the Kitchen program which introduces children to healthy (and sometimes new!) food choices by allowing them a hands-on experience with food preparation.
- Our Junior League of Owensboro 5K Run/Walk in downtown Owensboro gives the community another fun option for being active.
- Our Jump Around the Park event at Moreland Park each Spring offered healthy food choices, cooking demonstrations geared toward children and many fun activities. The event is held on a Saturday and is free to the public and includes a free healthy lunch.
