Did you know that May is National Salad Month? Our friends at TasteWise Kids are celebrating all things salad, green, and growing during their May Salad Campaign! Here’s how you can share the love of greens with your own kids and help other Baltimore kids, too!

Celebrate Salad Month with TasteWise Kids

Go On A Salad Hunt at Your Local Farmer’s Market

Find something you’ve never tasted before, a farmer selling mushrooms, or find a farmer that made a food product using a cow — TasteWise Kids’ May downloadable BINGO card will have your pint-sized foodie embarking on a market adventure! Don’t forget to share your BINGO adventures on social media and tag @tastewisekids on Facebook and @tastewise_kids on Instagram.
