The Teal Pumpkin Project

Our friends at FARE are encouraging everyone to raise awareness of food allergies by painting your pumpkins teal (the color of food allergy awareness) and handing out non-food treats for trick-or-treaters to ensure everyone has a safe and allergy-friendly Halloween.

  • Learn all about the program and how you can take part and support the project here.
  • Download a copy of FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project posters, pumpkin stencils, signs, stickers and more here.
  • Meet Becky Basalone, the woman who started the teal concept on her Tennessee porch.
