The Teal Pumpkin Project

Take the fear out of Halloween for thousands of children on Staten Island with food allergies.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is an awareness initiative that will help identify homes and locations that offer safe alternatives for trick-or-treaters with food allergies.

Here’s how you can participate: Paint a pumpkin teal and place it on your porch or download and print a picture of a teal pumpkin as a sign to other families managing food allergies that you have non-food treats available at your home. Your teal pumpkin is also a way to raise awareness in your neighborhood about food allergies!

The Teal Pumpkin Project is Food Allergy Research and Education’s Halloween Initiative to help raise awareness and provide a way for all children to enjoy Trick-or-Treating safely.

Print your Teal Pumpkin sign below. If you don’t have a color printer, have your child color the flyer at the bottom of the page with a teal crayon or marker.
