Kids in the Kitchen
As part of the international Kids in the Kitchen project, the Junior League of Flint provides nutritional education and activities to children, helping them adopt healthy nutritional habits.
We have been fortunate to work with the YWCA of Greater Flint and Sean Gartland of Feast in Fenton for the last couple of year. Sean brings the fun and Junior League members provide assistance to kids from the YWCA. We are fortunate to hold this event each year in the demo kitchen at The Flint Farmer's Market.
History of Kids in the Kitchen
In 2006, the Association of Junior Leagues International and Junior Leagues from across four countries initiated an international grass-roots movement called Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen, designed to help communities address the urgent issues surrounding childhood obesity and poor nutrition.
This League-wide initiative not only addresses a growing problem facing today’s children, but also honors the Junior League’s long heritage of impact on family nutrition over the past 105 years.
