Halloween 2016: The Staten Island Teal Pumpkin Project Guide

by | Oct 28, 2016 | Uncategorized


What is the Teal Pumpkin Project?

Halloween is dangerous for children with severe food allergies, and with 1 in 13 children having allergies, a night usually full of fun and magic can quickly become a parent’s worst nightmare.

The Teal Pumpkin Project protects children with food allergies by offering safer choices to traditional candy. Members sign pledges to offer non-food treats and place teal pumpkins outside their doors on Halloween.

The Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) group started the Teal Pumpkin Project in 2014, to raise awareness about the dangers of food allergies, and it has spread nationwide.
