Wondering how you can support children with special dietary needs at Halloween? Participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project!
The Teal Pumpkin Project is a simple way to make trick-or-treating safer and more inclusive for children living with food allergies, and many others impacted by intolerances and other conditions. Placing a teal pumpkin or a teal pumpkin sign on your doorstep signals to trick-or-treaters and their families that you offer non-food trinkets and treats that are safe for all trick or treaters (in addition to candy, or whatever else you normally offer).
The Teal Pumpkin Project was inspired by a local awareness activity run by the Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee (FACET). FACET has an ongoing partnership with the Food Allergy Research & Education organization, FARE. Together, they work to reach families across the country and around the world with the Teal Pumpkin Project’s messages of awareness, inclusion, and community.
