The Teal Pumpkin Project aims to raise food allergy awareness

El Paso, TX – October 31, 2016 –  1 in 13 children suffer from food allergies which means, 1 in 13 children have to navigate these allergies every Halloween night.   

The Teal Pumpkin Project aims to give kids safe alternatives to their food allergies this Halloween by offering non-food treats.  

"It helps spread awareness to the community that there are kids with food allergies and it helps give those kids a safe alternative to regular Halloween treats," said Maria-Elena Gonzales, Nurse Practitioner of Texan Allergy and Sinus Center.

Pencils, tops, and action figures are just a few of the toys that homes can buy for cheap to give out to children with food allergies this October.
