  1. Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
    • Non-food options, like glow sticks, promote inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.
  2. Paint or purchase a teal pumpkin
    • Paint a real pumpkin teal, using acrylic or spray paint.
    • Or, purchase a pumpkin from a local retailer or online.
  3. Place the teal pumpkin in front of your home
    • This indicates to passersby that you have non-food treats available.
  4. Display a free printable sign or premium poster from FARE
    • This will help explain the meaning of your teal pumpkin to visitors to your home.
  5. Embrace the teal!
    • Teal is the color of food allergy awareness. It has been used to raise awareness about this serious medical condition for nearly 20 years.
    • Spread the word to your friends and neighbors to grow this movement!
