Kids in the Kitchen is a multi-year initiative involving quarterly Kids in the Kitchen events in partnership with local community organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of Western Reserve. The program is designed to creatively educate children on crucial areas such as fitness and nutrition in a fun and hands-on fashion.
“The Junior League of Akron is so grateful to Cargill for its generous donation,” said Cindy Retterer, President of the Junior League of Akron. “It will allow us to do more with our Kids in the Kitchen Program and have an even greater impact on the children we serve.” Also accepting the grant on behalf of JLA was Kimberly Young, league vice president of community outreach.
One of the largest volunteer service organizations in the area, the Junior League of Akron has active volunteers who have contributed more than 100,000 hours of service to the greater Akron community.
