Irene and Philip believe every child should be able to experience the tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween. But kids with food allergies are often left out of the fun, since most candy is off limits.
The Food Allergy Research & Education’s (FARE) Teal Pumpkin Project helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. It just takes one simple act: offering non-food treats, such as glow sticks, stickers, colouring books or small toys, as an alternative to candy.
This year we will be participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project in the area of Rathburn Road south to Dundas St. W and from Kipling Avenue to The East Mall.
