The Meaning Behind Teal Pumpkins On Doorsteps This Halloween

When you think of Halloween, you think of horror films, an autumn zephyr in the air, and, naturally, candy!

Trick-or-treating is every child’s favorite part of the ghastly holiday. Trick-or-treating has been a traditional component of Halloween festivities for a long while, though in recent years it’s gotten much more convoluted.

The world is not as confiding as it used to be, thereby parents are urged to accompany kids. In addition, a lot of kids possess food allergies that were not as prevalent once as they are now.

For those children, trick-or-treating can impart a distinct challenge. They could partake in the trick-or-treating and flaunt their costumes, however they couldn’t eat most of the candy they amassed. And, that freckin’ sucks!

Every one hundred-eighty seconds, someone in the U.S. has to go the emergency room due to a food allergy. This, friends, is where “The Teal Pumpkin Project” comes forth…

In 2014, FARE commenced the Teal Pumpkin Project to propagate awareness about food allergies surrounding Halloween.

These teal pumpkins aren’t simply a lovely splash of color to your decorations, they too assist families of kids with food allergies knowing that you support their cause. The notion for teal pumpkins was first instituted by the FACET (Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee) for their local community.

It has since circulated into a nationwide trend. “The Teal Pumpkin Project promotes safety, inclusion, and respect for all those managing food allergies,” stressed FARE Director of Communications Nancy Gregory.
