The Junior League of Tucson offers opportunities for community and civic leadership development, serving southern Arizona primarily in our Community Issue Area of Menstrual Equity and Period Product Access.
Kids in the Kitchen is a Junior League community initiative that began in 2006. The goal of Kids in the Kitchen is to engage kids and parents in the preparation of healthy meals, and to provide education on nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
The Junior League of Tucson’s Kids in the Kitchen program travels to Tucson area schools and community events to teach children and their parents/caregivers how to make easy healthy snacks that are fun and affordable. The program also teaches the importance of physical fitness, nutrition, and dental hygiene.
