The Teal Pumpkin Project

1 in 13 children suffer from food allergies which means 1 in 13 children are missing out on regular Halloween activities.

What is the Teal Pumpkin Project?

The Teal Pumpkin Project was started by FARE to increase awareness about food allergies during Halloween. The project also empowers homes to offer non-food treats to children who suffer from food allergies.

What are non-food treats?

Non-food treats are things that kids enjoy that aren't edible. Some examples of non-food treats include:

All of these items can be found in abundance for quite cheap at local dollar stores or online! And remember, just because you're participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project doesn't mean you can't give candy. You can still give away candy as a treat, just keep it in a separate container!

How do I get involved?

Spread the word of the Teal Pumpkin Project by painting one of your own or just getting one from a shop! You go to stores likwho sell teal pumpkins that you can decorate and put right outside your home.

By displaying a teal pumpkin, you're stating that you provide non-food treats to children who suffer from food allergies. You can find a bunch of goodies at your local dollar store -- glow in the dark bracelets, tops, pencils, stickers, etc.

Once you're all ready, you can register your home on FARE's Teal Pumpkin map! This will display your home as one that gives away non-food treats for Halloween!
