The Teal Pumpkin Project™ was inspired by a local awareness activity run by the Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee (FACET) and launched a national campaign by The Food Allergy Research and Education Organization (FARE) in 2014. FARE thanks FACET for their ongoing partnership as they work to reach families across the country and around the world with the Teal Pumpkin Project’s messages of awareness, inclusion, and community.
The Teal Pumpkin Project™ is now in its third year and raises awareness of food allergies and promotes a safer, happier Halloween by encouraging households to make non-food treats available so that trick-or-treaters who need to avoid candy, due to food allergies or other reasons, can fully participate. Households can show they are participating by placing a teal pumpkin in front of their home.
