Teal Pumpkin Project®

Candy is not an option for all children due to food allergies or other medical reasons making Halloween a difficult time for many families. The Teal Pumpkin Project® aims to raise awareness about this and encourage non-food options to pass out.

Getting involved is easy as one-two-three!

  1. Place a teal pumpkin outside your door to identify that your home or office is allergy friendly. You can paint a pumpkin teal or print this sign for your door. 
  2. Have non-food treats available like stickers, temporary tattoos, glow stick or any from this list
  3. Spread the word and make a child’s day! Place your home on the Teal Pumpkin Project map and get social with #tealpumpkinproject

Create a safe, happier Halloween for all! To learn more visit:
