The Junior League of Reno continues to work to end childhood hunger in northern Nevada with nutritional education programs like Kids in the Kitchen, and partnering with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada with an annual Lemelson STEM Academy Food Pantry sponsorship.

The league is encouraging others to help fight hunger through education and volunteering.

• TEACH: Teach the importance of giving back to your local community and those in need by creating a personal fundraising campaign through Set the Table. Kids can donate on their birthday or other special events by asking friends and family to make a donation to Feeding America in lieu of buying a present.

• VOLUNTEER: Connect with your food bank for local ways to get involved. If you or your family is involved in a community group, such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or 4H, see if the group can volunteer together.

The Junior League of Reno, a women’s organization, impacts the community by enhancing the quality of life for women and children through projects, advocacy, community grants and partnerships.
