P.S.

Have You Heard Of The Teal Pumpkin Project?  

Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 2.56.47 PM.png

Kids with food allergies don't get to enjoy Halloween like the others. That's why FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) came up with the Teal Pumpkin Project. While you're stocking up on candy, get a few other knick knacks kids love like bookmarks, glow sticks, crayons, etc. If you have a teal pumpkin on your porch, that lets parents know there is an option for their children.
