    You may spot them when you’re out and about this Halloween season.

    Back for its third year, the Teal Pumpkin Project™ is a nationwide movement bringing awareness to food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters on Halloween. The FARE (Food Allery Research and Education) Teal Pumpkin Project™ promotes choices for kids with food allergies or who can’t eat candy.

    We love this program because Breezemont’s own dining hall safely feeds kids with special food needs. Go Teal!

    Join the over 100,000 other households this Halloween and place a teal painted pumpkin or place this sign outside your door to let trick-or-treaters know that you have allergy-free alternatives!

    If you would like to donate non-food treats, please drop them off in the Breezemont Visitors Center at your convenience or you can bring them to the Halloween Festival on Oct 31st. These items will be distributed to local Armonk homes and businesses participating in trick-or-treating along with teal pumpkin fliers they can display.

    Some fun non-food treats, such as Halloween pencils, glow sticks, stickers, tattoos and more can be purchased at Amazon.com,  Oriental Trading Company, or your local CVS.
