Food allergies and trick-or-treating have always been a pesky combo, until now. Thanks to the Teal Pumpkin Project, children who suffer from food allergies can ask for treats without worrying.

In an effort to make trick-or-treating safer for children with food allergies, Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) launched the Teal Pumpkin Project two years ago. FARE asks households to pass out non-food treats on Halloween and designate their houses as allergy-safe with a teal – the color of food allergy awareness – pumpkins.

If time is scarce, you can also use one of FARE’s free printable signs to identify your house. For a map of all the teal pumpkin houses in your area, visit the website.
