Teal is the color of food allergy awareness, and has been used to raise awareness for more than 20 years.
Placing a teal pumpkin on your door tells children with food allergies that you have safe, non-food “treats” just for them – like pencils, erasers, stickers, bubbles, rings and stencils.
Registered dietitian Kim Denman and her team are hosting a teal pumpkin painting October 1st from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Bettendorf Hy-Vee (2900 Devils Glen Road). $10 per pumpkin.
