This is the Junior League of Jacksonville's Seventh Annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI), wherein we seek to raise awareness of food insecurity and poverty in the Jacksonville community and highlight
some of Jacksonville Junior League's efforts to alleviate some of those effects. We - over 800 women of the
Junior League - work tirelessly to build a better Jacksonville. Among many
other efforts, we volunteer at a farm located in one of Jacksonville’s food
deserts, volunteer at a local food bank, lobby our lawmakers for favorable
legislation to help our community combat food insecurity, teach kids to
make healthy food choices, and prepare and provide over 500 meals a month to families in our community.
During the week of February 21– February 25, each member of the Jacksonville Junior League (JLJ) will
be wearing the same black dress for five days to bring attention to the problems of food insecurity and poverty in our community and raise money to support the JLJ’s
Mission. We are asking you to support us. All donations will go to support the Junior League of
Your support is incredibly critical for us to meet our goal
of raising $15,000 in just
five days to make this campaign a success. Your donation is tax deductible and
every dollar is important. Every dollar allows us to continue supporting JLJ's mission, including our programs that impact the effects of food insecurity in Jacksonville.
