If You See a Teal Pumpkin on Someone’s Porch on Halloween, Here’s What It Means

If you’re the parent of a child with food allergies, there’s excellent news for you this Halloween, depending on whether or not your state sets a mandate against trick or treating per Covid regulations of course.

There’s a “Teal Pumpkin Project” that is about to make your kid with food sensitivities one happy camper — or Dracula, or unicorn, or Ninja Turtle…you get the point.

Ella-Rose Ray was taking a stroll through Target when she noticed the teal pumpkins for the first time, and in an effort to spread awareness, she shared a few pictures of the pumpkins along with a message on Facebook that has since gone viral, being shared over 171,000 times:

“Today I was shopping at Target and in the Halloween section I saw the Teal pumpkins. Not everyone knows what the Teal pumpkin is. The teal pumpkin lets trick-or-treaters with allergies know that you have stuff for them. This doesn’t only mean Nut free candy. There are kids out there that can’t even have candy. Little plastic toys are a great option. As a kid with a nut allergy I really encourage everyone to put out the teal pumpkin. Please spread the word! Thanks!! #tealpumpkinproject   Https://www.foodallergy.org

According to the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) website, “Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.”
