Our program brings families together monthly to learn how to prepare low-cost, nutritious meals. League members create menus and cook with the families, serving more than 20 families with 40 children at each session. This year the JLKCMO is partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kansas City and Operation Breakthrough. Past partners include University Academy and the Kauffman School.

The JLKCMO organizes and presents spring and fall Resource Fairs for residents in an urban corridor identified by the Urban Neighborhood Initiative. The fairs give residents access to vaccinations, dental screenings, health and wellness providers, groceries and other community resources.
