: An Allergy-Friendly Halloween
Halloween can be a tricky time of year for families managing food allergies. This year, join Food Allergy Research & Education's (FARE) Teal Pumpkin Project to create a safer, happier Halloween for everyone!
Launched as a campaign by FARE last year, the Teal Pumpkin Project raises awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. This nationwide movement offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option.
Here's how you can participate:
- Pledge to support the Teal Pumpkin Project on FARE's website
- Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
- Paint a pumpkin teal -- the color of food allergy awareness -- to place in front of your home along with a free printable sign from FARE to indicate you have non-food treats available.
To learn more about the Teal Pumpkin Project, help spread the word in your neighborhood, or add your home to FARE's crowd-sourced map, visit www.foodallergy.org.
