Taking part in the Teal Pumpkin Project™ is simple: Start by taking the pledge to participate! Then plan to offer non-food treats to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. Finally, paint a pumpkin teal to place in front of your home, along with a free printable sign from FARE – this indicates you have non-food treats available.
You may already have it on your to-do list to buy teal paint and stock up on non-food treats, but what else can you do to help make the most of this year’s Teal Pumpkin Project™ for you and your family?
First – be sure to take FARE’s pledge and join 100,000 households pledging to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project™! Taking the pledge shows that you support kids with food allergies and want to make a difference. Take the Pledge Today!
In addition to taking the pledge, here are a few more simple ways you can help spread the word and get involved with this much-loved nationwide movement.
Involve your friends and neighbors
Halloween has always been about neighbors coming together to create a fun and memorable experience for their children. FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project™ is a great way to make connections with your neighbors, while raising awareness of food allergies. Print FARE’s free downloadable flyer and pass them on to other households on your block. Bring your kids along as you ask your neighbors to join you and 100,000 other households pledging to participate this year!
