The Junior League of Long Beach, in partnership with the Long Beach Health Department’s Healthy Active Long Beach program, held its 12TH ANNUAL KIDS IN THE KITCHEN healthy eating and exercise fair on March 11, 2017! This fun and educational event was held at Martin Luther King, Jr. Park.
Building on the success of previous years, we hosted about 900 children and their families. They enjoyed more than 30 interactive and informational booths related to health, fitness and nutritious food. Professional chefs will gave away snacks, young performers provided live entertainment, fitness demonstrations, hands-on activities and more was had at this FREE event.
We need help from the community to continue to grow this event and reach more families in need! We are currently seeking local organizations, businesses and individuals who are interested in bringing an interactive booth to this event or becoming one of our event sponsors for 2018. Also, we are always looking for community volunteers and donations for our raffles and goody bags.
We are so grateful to everyone who has helped make this event a Long Beach tradition for the past 12 years.
