GARDEN CITY -

While trick-or-treating can be a lot of fun, it can be somewhat frightening for parents who have a child with a life-threatening food allergy.

The Teal Pumpkin Project has made it easier for those kids to get involved with the Halloween fun.

Homeowners can place a teal pumpkin on their doorstep to let trick-or-treaters know that the home is providing non-food-items or candy that is free of allergens to kids for Halloween.

More information, including an interactive map of participating households, can be found at FoodAllergy.org.
