For some, chocolate, candy corn, and popcorn are staples when it comes to Halloween candy, but there are some kids who will have to be more selective on trick-or-treat night because of food allergies.

According to Food Allergy Research and Education, one out of every thirteen children in the United States has at least one food allergy.

People who choose to participate in the project display a painted teal pumpkin or any of the logos or items for sale on the FARE website in their yard or on their porch. Those who know what this non-traditionally colored pumpkin means will know that it is safe for their kids with allergies to trick-or-treat at that home.
