The Teal Pumpkin Project focuses on food allergies this Halloween
HARTFORD – The Teal Pumpkin Project is back and bigger than ever, as the annual campaign from Food Allergy Research & Education expands and aims for a teal pumpkin on every block in every neighborhood in the United States.
One in 13 children in the U.S. has a food allergy, a potentially life-threatening disease that presents many challenges for millions of families across the country.
This Halloween, FARE encourages people to show their support for kids with food allergies and other dietary restrictions to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project, an awareness initiative that promotes safety and inclusion for all trick-or-treaters.
Being part of the Teal Pumpkin Project is simple. Supporters can:
- Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
- Paint a pumpkin teal or buy a teal pumpkin at your local craft store or pharmacy, or print a free sign from FARE’s website
- Place your teal pumpkin or sign in front of your home to indicate non-food treats are available
