Teal Pumpkin Project
Please support Teal Pumpkin Project! Help make Halloween safe, inclusive and fun for everyone!
Did you know 1 in 13 children in the U.S. has a food allergy? That’s roughly two in every classroom.
Display a teal pumpkin outside your home to indicate you have non-food treats available for children with food allergies or other health issues. Non-food treats include stickers, crayons, spider rings, bubbles and other small toys.
If you choose to participate, please keep non-food treats separate from any food/candy to prevent contamination.
Display this free printable sign, paint or decorate a real pumpkin teal, or purchase one from a local craft store.
You can also register your household on this Interactive Participation Map.
ALECPTA member and food allergy mom Lindsey Geiss shares more info in this blog post and FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) offers more free resources on its Teal Pumpkin Project website.
The Food Allergy Parents of Avon Lake thank you! Have a Happy Teal-oween!
