Following the games, Galan introduced the kids to unique vegetables and herbs and taught them how to make a flavorful and healthy marinara tomato sauce. Each child was able to sample the creation paired with noodles and were given the recipe to make at home.

Junior League of Las Vegas partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada to offer this program to local kids in areas of need. JuniorLeague’s Kids in the Kitchen is an association-wide initiative of the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) designed to help communities address the urgent issues surrounding childhood obesity and poor nutrition. Launched in 2006, the programs are committed to improving the health of today’s youth by empowering them tomake choices that lead to healthy lifestyles. The initiative illustrates the power of voluntarism to address community needs on both the grassroots and international levels.
