Orange is out. This Halloween people are downright obsessed with teal pumpkins, for an important reason! Having a teal pumpkin in front of your home is the indicator that you have non-food treats (stickers, glow sticks, etc.) for trick-or-treaters with food allergies and other kids for whom candy is not an option. It’s a simple and caring gesture to make sure that every child who comes to your door on Halloween night can leave with a safe treat.
Here are a few people that have taken their love of the Teal Pumpkin Project™ to the next level. Be sure to visit tealpumpkinproject.org to get involved!

He’s allergic to tree nuts and asked that a teal pumpkin be drawn on his cast. Way to make a bad day better!
A boy who’s allergic to tree nuts is such a fan of the #tealpumpkinproject that he wanted a teal pumpkin drawn on his cast to show his support! Happy to see this campaign make Halloween safer and happier for kids across the country! #Halloween #foodallergy #foodallergies A photo posted by FARE (@foodallergy) on Sep 22, 2015 at 8:34am PDT

6. These kids having a teal pumpkin party
All the cool kids want their friends with food allergies to have an awesome Halloween.
Thank you to these awesome kids who helped me paint 130 mini pumpkins teal for the FARE Walk. Now people at the walk can decorate them and they won’t have to deal with wet paint. Don’t know what the Teal Pumpkin Project is? A teal pumpkin means a home has non-food treats available for trick-or-treaters with food allergies and other dietary restrictions.
