The pumpkins serve as a signal to children who want to participate in trick-or-treating, but suffer from a food allergy.

Affordable non-food items are available at dollar stores, party supply stores, or online shops, and low-priced items can be purchased and handed out to all trick-or-treaters, or made available in a separate bowl from candy if a resident chooses to hand out both options. On FARE's website, you can find ideas for non-food treats.

"Whether it's a lantern or whether it's a teal lightbulb on your front porch, kids with food allergies will know that your house has options for them that are not food related".
