Teal Pumpkin Project

This Halloween consider supporting children in your communities who live with food allergies and special diets. Some children are on restricted diets to help manage behavioral issues while some may live with a life-threatening food allergies. Whatever the case may be, children on restricted diets struggle to participate in holiday festivities– especially Halloween.

The non-profit Food, Allergy, Research & Education group’s Teal Pumpkin Project aims to help kids with food allergies celebrate Halloween by raising awareness and creating a safe way for them to trick-or-treat. Homes wishing to provide non-edible treats should display a teal pumpkin by their front door to let trick-or-treaters know safe goodies are available. You can also download flyers or order window stickers from the FARE website. Stickers, pencils, glow stick, bouncy balls and figurines are just a few ideas for non-food items.
