Partnership Makes it Possible
The Teal Pumpkin Project® helps create a happier and safer Halloween for all children. In 2017, this national awareness campaign is bigger than ever – which wouldn’t be possible without the help of our proud partners!
As you’ve shopped around retail stores like Michaels and CVS this season, you might have noticed officially licensed Teal Pumpkin Project crafts and accessories. These products, bearing the official Teal Pumpkin Project logo, all help to financially support life-changing food allergy research and initiatives.
We are excited to share that a number of popular retailers have committed to making a contribution back to FARE to help shine a light on the Teal Pumpkin Project this year by carrying official Teal Pumpkin Project merchandise or by promoting the Teal Pumpkin Project.
Ahold USA's brands, including Stop & Shop, Giant Food and GIANT/MARTIN'S, are exclusive grocery partners on the East Coast to the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Teal Pumpkin Project to help shoppers become more aware of food allergies and ensure safe choices for all trick-or-treaters this Halloween. Shoppers will find special Teal Pumpkin Project sections at all participating Ahold USA brand store locations where they will be able to purchase allergy friendly, non-food treats like glow sticks as well as the teal pumpkin baskets which can placed in front of their home to indicate they have safe, non-food treats available for children with food allergies.
CVS Pharmacy is proud to be a partner of FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project to promote inclusion of all trick-or-treaters, including children with food allergies or special dietary needs throughout the Halloween season. Through the available selection of official Teal Pumpkin Project items such as window clings, jack-o-lanterns, and non-edible Halloween “treats” like light up rings, toys and glow sticks, CVS Pharmacy helps parents conveniently shop for their Halloween needs for all types of trick-or-treaters in their neighborhood.
