Kids in the Kitchen

A healthy kids’ initiative to bring awareness to the issue of Food Insecurity in our community and to promote health and wellness while teaching children nutritional recipes and tips on how to stay healthy.

Each year, the Junior League of Manatee County explores new ways to get involved in the community to impact children and families' health and well-being. We are pleased to announce that JLMC has chosen Food Insecurity as our community issue based focus.

Through a partnership with Realize Bradenton, JLMC hosts a monthly healthy cooking session at the Bradenton Farmer's Market. Kids will be given a healthy twist on a recipe for something they love to eat, like pizza. They are then tasked with finding the ingredients in the market. Once all of the ingredients are gathered, members of JLMC help lead the kids through their recipe. Family members got to take home recipe cards to replicate the yummy creations and hopefully find new local vendors to enjoy. 

JLMC strives to alleviate Food Insecurity in our community by providing access to and education about healthy, fresh food!
