Make This Halloween More Inclusive by Participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project!


Why display a Teal Pumpkin?

The Teal Pumpkin Project is a simple way to make trick-or-treating safer and more inclusive for the one in 13 children living with food allergies, and many others impacted by intolerances and other conditions. Placing a teal pumpkin on your doorstep signals that, in addition to candy, you offer non-food trinkets and treats that are safe for all trick-or-treaters. Help make this Halloween one to remember!

How can families searching for houses with non-food treats find you?

Adding your home to the Teal Pumpkin Project Map makes your house easy to find for those on the hunt for non-food treats. The more houses added to the Map, the more inclusive (and therefore more fun) we can make Halloween!

Where can I find Teal Pumpkins to display?
