National Salad Month
#GivetheGiftofSalad this May
TasteWise Kids is on a mission to make food education fun for kids and we need your help! During the month of May we have an array of educational activities, recipes and events to celebrate National Salad Month.
We're fundraising to send salad kits home with every Days of Taste student by asking for donations from our supporters. These kits include ingredients to feed a family of four along with recipes for how to use them and information on why eating fresh veggies is so good for you! $20 covers the cost of one salad kit, but of course we appreciate donations of any amount!
We're also lucky to partner with many local restaurants throughout National Salad Month. Some have exclusive TWK Salads on their menus, while others are hosting virtual recipe walkthroughs and educational read-alouds! Check out our list of partners and how they're involved in our fundraising efforts below.

To make May even better, it's also School Garden Month!
To celebrate both holidays, Baltimore City Schools and Great Kids Farms have created a salad and garden themed contest for green teams.
Submit a recipe for a salad using the greens from your school garden.
The winning team gets an exclusive virtual kitchen tour from Chef Zack Mills of True Chesapeake!
Recipes should be submitted by May 24th.
Student groups can enter by having their teacher post their recipe (with photos) on social media and tag Friends of Great Kids Farm (@Friends of Great Kids Farm on Facebook, or @friendsgkf on Instagram), or by emailing their submission to farms @bcps.k12.md.us.
Recipes will be judged by the Great Kids Farm team based on creativity, seasonality and taste!
