The Teal Pumpkin Project™

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2015 Teal Pumpkin Project™! We can't wait to see you next year as we continue to fulfill our mission to create a safer, happier Halloween for all!

Launched as a national campaign by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) in 2014, the Teal Pumpkin Project™ raises awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season.

This year, you can be part of an even bigger movement by joining 100,000 households pledging to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project™! Take the Pledge!

FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project™ promotes safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies.

This nationwide movement offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option, and keeps Halloween a fun, positive experience for all!

Get Involved

Do you want to help spread the Teal Pumpkin Project’s messages of a safer, happier Halloween for all even further? You can support FARE and the Teal Pumpkin Project™ in a variety of ways:

The Teal Pumpkin Project™ was inspired by a local awareness activity run by the Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee (FACET). FARE thanks FACET for their ongoing partnership as we work to reach families across the country and around the world with the Teal Pumpkin Project’s messages of awareness, inclusion and community.


Put your home on the #tealpumpkinproject map! When you're out trick-or-treating you can use the "Go to" function to find homes near you that will have non-food treats!
