Halloween 2015: Teal Pumpkin Project aims to protect kids with food allergies

Oct 24, 2015

 

"It is so important that a child with an allergy be able to trick-or-treat to a home that supports the TPP so that they can receive a non-food treat," said Kim Luxoro, director of Zion Lutheran Preschool, Willowbrook. "I give out small water bottles on Halloween and it is always well-received by the children and their parents."

 

She added: "A little one who trick or treats to a home participating in the TPP (Teal Pumpkin Project) would be so happy to get a new pencil or sticker instead of a food item that could potentially put them in harm's way. I absolutely support this project and hope that it will bring even more awareness for those who have to deal with food allergies on a daily basis."
