We're doing the Teal Pumpkin Project this year!

This Halloween, FARE is encouraging communities to start a new tradition that will help make this holiday season less scary for children with food allergies: the Teal Pumpkin Project. This campaign encourages people to raise awareness of food allergies by providing non-food treats for trick-or-treaters and painting a pumpkin teal - the color of food allergy awareness - to place in front of their house along with a free printable sign from FARE to indicate they have non-food treats available.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all.

We're doing it too! I cannot believe it hasn't been mentioned on here thus far. My husband just finished painting a new plastic pumpkin blue so we can ave it from year to year. This year we will be bringing it, along with food-free treats to our church for the evening. I cannot believe it hasn't been mentioned on here thfar.

Here's hoping it's a trend that will last for many years.
