Take Part in the Teal Pumpkin Project® With These Five Easy Steps

The Teal Pumpkin Project exists to help create a safer, happier Halloween for all children. Taking part of the Teal Pumpkin project is simple by following these easy steps.

  1. Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
    • Non-food options, like glow sticks, promote inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.
  2. Paint or purchase a teal pumpkin
    • Paint a real pumpkin teal, using acrylic or spray paint available at craft and discount stores.
    • Or, purchase a pumpkin from a local retailer or online. Products bearing the official Teal Pumpkin Project logo help to support the food allergy community. {link to partner post}.
  3. Place the teal pumpkin in front of your home
    • The teal pumpkin indicates to passersby that you have non-food treats available.
  4. Display a free printable sign, premium poster, or Teal Pumpkin Project Proud Supporter Garden Flag from FARE
    • This will help explain the meaning of your teal pumpkin to visitors to your home.
  5. Embrace the teal!
    • Teal is the color of food allergy awareness. It has been used to raise awareness about this serious medical condition for over 20 years.
    • Spread the word to your friends and neighbors by sharing the Teal Pumpkin Project online!
