Treasure Valley Homes Participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project
Now that you know why those brightly colored pumpkins are popping up all over your neighborhood, you may be on the lookout for food allergy safe homes on your trick or treat route!
Luckily, the Food Allergy Research & Education non-profit has made it easy to find out which homes will be giving out safe, non-food trick or treat items! Like NextDoor's "Treat Map," FARE has an interactive map on their Teal Pumpkin Project website where neighbors can add their addresses as a home participating in the initiative to make kids allergic to common Halloween candy ingredients like milk, nuts and chocolate, feel more included while trick or treating. In fact, many of the homes that have marked themselves as "participating" even list what they plan on giving out!
These homes say they're participating in 2017. If you'd like to add your home to the map just click HERE.
