Put on your family-appropriate costume (encouraged, but not required) and join us for an afternoon of  food-free Halloween fun! We’ve got new games, activities and entertainment in store for you, as well as a costume contest with prizes for all age groups! We can’t wait to see the creative costumes you all come up with this year! This party is for the whole family, from toddlers to teens and adults, too! Registration opens soon…

What is the Teal Pumpkin Project?

A teal pumpkin on your doorstep tells trick-or-treaters with food allergies and restrictions that you have inexpensive non-food treats available, so they can keep the treat they receive at your house. This can be in addition to or instead of candy. If you offer both, please keep the trinkets in a separate container to avoid cross contact with food residue on candy wrappers. Some families offers all trick-or-treaters a choice between a treat you eat and one you don’t, so kids with restrictions don’t have to speak up. You’d be surprised how many kids go for the trinket instead of the candy! Other families create special goody bags just for kids with food allergies and/or restrictions. However you do it, this is a wonderful way to safely include all kids on Halloween, and spread a little food allergy awareness, too!

Help spread the word about this wonderfully inclusive campaign by using the hashtag #tealpumpkinproject on social media. Click here for free printables and more information.
