Fall River mom wants all children to enjoy Halloween by spreading the word on Nationwide Teal Pumpkin Project



A Fall River mom is trying to help all children enjoy Halloween by spreading the word about the Nationwide Teal Pumpkin Project.

Megan Rodrigues has a son currently in treatment for several life-threatening allergies and is looking to bring awareness to how those allergies can make trick-or-treating difficult.

“One in thirteen children has a food allergy that they must deal with on a daily basis. Halloween can be a particularly difficult time to navigate for food allergic children and their parents. FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project was created to promote a safer, happier Halloween for all kids. You simply register your home or business on the map, display a teal pumpkin, and have non-food treats available. This provides inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies, intolerances or other conditions.”

This year all 6 fire stations in Fall River will be taking part in the Teal Pumpkin Project.
