Get Started

FARE's Teal Pumpkin Project is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all kids

Participating is Simple!

Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions. Become a Teal Pumpkin Project Insider to receive resources and updates straight to your inbox to help you spread the word and make this year's Teal Pumpkin Project the most memorable - yet!
