How Has the JLC Been Involved?The Junior League of Charlottesville has participated in Kids in the Kitchen since its inception. The focus was to educate children on the importance of eating well and staying healthy with Junior Leagues' Kids in the Kitchen Activities.
- In 2006 we hosted our first ever Kids in the Kitchen Event in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of Charlottesville.
- In 2007 we hosted our Kids in the Kitchen Event in conjunction with the Girl Scouts of Virginia Healthy Living Day.
- In 2008 we hosted our Kids in the Kitchen "Healthy Living Fair" at Johnson Elementary School.
