The Teal Pumpkin Project®, which launched as an international campaign in 2014 by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), provides 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. Participating in the campaign is as simple as painting a pumpkin teal, buying inexpensive non-food treats such as glow sticks or small toys and placing the teal pumpkin on your doorstep to show non-food treats are available. FARE’s goal in 2016 is to have at least one home on every block in the U.S. with a teal pumpkin.

The following resources are available to members of the media covering the Teal Pumpkin Project.
