Don’t let this Halloween FRIGHTEN you! The TEAL PUMPKIN PROJECT has got you and your GOULISH loved ones covered!

What is the Teal Pumpkin Project?

The Teal Pumpkin Project is a fun way to increase food allergy awareness and offers a simple way to make trick-or-treating safer and more inclusive for those with food allergies!

A teal pumpkin on the doorstep identifies a house as having not only candy treats but non-edible options available for the taking!

I have food allergies; how can I find teal pumpkins?

You can simply trick or treat with your friends and family and look for houses that have a teal pumpkin on their doorstep, or you can plan your route ahead of time by checking the Teal Pumpkin Project Map which shows participating houses in your area!

I want to offer a teal pumpkin; how can I participate?

If you are interested in participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project by offering non-edible items, simply place a teal pumpkin on your doorstep which tells trick-or-treaters that you offer non-food goodie options for them.

You also have the option to add your house address to the Teal Pumpkin Project Map so that those with food allergies can plan their SPOOKY trick-or-treating adventure!

Some great non-food goodie options include:

Glow sticks or bracelets, spider rings, pencils, erasers, bouncy balls, squish toys, tattoos, bookmarks, stickers, bubbles, crayons, or miniature cars.

Thank you for making this Halloween SPOOKTACKULAR!!
