May is National Salad Month!

In 2022 we're celebrating all things salad, green, and growing while also raising money to promote healthy eating and food education. We'll have lots of amazing activities, guest contributions from local chefs, and of course, salad recipes to share throughout the month so be sure to stay tuned.

Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Spread the word about National Salad Month to friends, families and fellow educators
  • Make a donation to TasteWise Kids
  • Participate in an activity or grab a salad from one of our Restaurant Promotion Partners ($1 from each salad goes directly to us)
  • Challenge friends to eat salad in May and donate the cost to TasteWise Kids

Check out below for more details about our programming and partners and get tasting!

May At-Home Activities

From learning about salads from all around the world to starting your own salad garden at home, we have lots of great activities included in our TWKatHome May content. Our at-home activities are designed for a range of ages and can often be done with only household materials like paper and writing implements.

We also share some great reading suggestions to learn more about salad and prompts for discussion!
