Teal Pumpkin Project for Hallowe’en

Next weekend, little ghouls and ghosts will be making the rounds, and if you’re like most people, you want to make sure each and every one of them has a great time trick-or-treating.

This Hallowe’en, should you see teal pumpkins, you can thank a group of mothers from East Tennessee for the Teal Pumpkin Project initiative they started in 2014.

Last year, all 50 states in the U.S. as well as 14 other countries participated by painting a pumpkin teal, then setting it out on their front porches to let trick-or-treaters know that their houses were providing non-candy treats as well as traditional fare.

The initiative began as an effort to make Hallowe’en more inclusive for treat-or-treaters with special dietary needs or medical conditions that are exacerbated by certain ingredients.
