#TealPumpkinProject is back!

#TealPumpkinProjectWe are doing the teal pumpkins again this year!!  Have you heard of the #TealPumpkinProject? The #TealPumpkinProject is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween fun for all!

This campaign encourages people to raise awareness of food allergies by providing non-food treats for trick-or-treaters and painting a pumpkin teal (the color of food allergy awareness) to place in front of their house. Purchasing inexpensive non-food treats to hand out is a great way to include all children in the holiday, and we hope that the #TealPumpkinProject will be a tradition for years to come.
