The Teal Project

Halloween 2023 UK


Halloween is a tricky time of year for those living with allergies and intolerances.


Often having to steer clear of trick and treating or parties that might not be safe.


A few years back in America an organisation called FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) launched a campaign called “The TEAL Project”!


The idea behind the campaign was to make halloween safer for those living with allergies and intolerances. 


The Teal Project is a fantastic opportunity to make halloween inclusive and safe for everyone to get involved. One that we hope takes off in UK as much as it has in the USA. 


All you have to do is place a TEAL pumpkin at your door or display a TEAL poster and have some alternative treats that are non-food items at the ready. (examples below) 


Safe Alternatives For Everyone - SAFE


We have designed some posters that you can print off and display at home. They clearly show a teal pumpkin but also the word SAFE (Safe Alternatives For Everyone). Lets get our doorsteps looking teal for 2023 and keep those living with allergies and intolerances safe while trick and treating!


How does it work?


Display your poster for all to see or get decorating a real pumpkin.
