Community Program Spotlight: Kids in the Kitchen

Kids in the Kitchen

This year, Kids in the Kitchen (KITK) is one of several programs supported by the Junior League of Greensboro. Here, we shed light on this impactful program and how our members are making a difference.

What is KITK?
Children’s health and wellness has consistently been a key issue for the Junior League, and the Junior League of Greensboro is one of many Leagues across the country and internationally that support this initiative. The goal of the KITK program is to promote health and wellness by empowering children and youth to make healthy lifestyle choices, with the goal of preventing obesity and its associated health risks.

How does the Junior League of Greensboro assist with KITK?
The Junior League of Greensboro is responsible for everything related to KITK, including planning the events, determining the food demonstrations, and volunteering during the event.

What is the KITK committee’s goal?
Our goal is to have an impact on as many local kids and families as possible by providing opportunities to make a healthy snack — and hopefully introduce some new healthy options. We work to accomplish this by hosting several events throughout the year. So far, we have hosted two KITK events at LeBauer Park in downtown Greensboro, which have included demonstrations on how to make trail mix and where bananas come from. We also participated in the Touch-A-Truck event this fall.

When is the next KITK event?
Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Kids in the Kitchen at Lebauer Park on March 17, 2018. You’ll be sure to leave with a new knowledge of all things green!
