HIP Kids Events


Healthy, Informed, Playful (HIP) Kids Events
In response to our community’s needs in the areas of childhood health, hunger, and poverty, the JLGO created HIP Kids. Since its inception in 2010, the HIP Kids program attempts to solve the immediate and long-term challenges faced by hungry children, living in a food desert.. HIP Kids Events aims to reduce hunger and improve health in children by hosting educational sessions each year – our Holiday Party in December, our Health Fair in March, and our Field Day in April. Parents are invited to attend as the JLGO seeks to help families make healthier eating and exercise choices.

JLGO proudly executes the HIP Kids Events program in coordination with the New Image Youth Center, a safe haven for Orlando youth providing after school and summer programs to support at-risk students in the Parramore neighborhood.

HIP Kids Events is a proud recipient of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s Mayor’s Matching Grant. For more information on the grant, please click here.
