It’s that time of year again and Northeast Ohio Food Allergy Network, in partnership with Stark Enterprises, held its annual Halloween Boo-Tique Oct. 24 at Eton Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere. As part of their “Teal Pumpkin Project,” hundreds of ghosts, goblins and little monsters took to the plaza with teal pumpkins in hand, collecting candy and other treats free of the most common allergens. The project’s mission is the inclusion of all trick or treaters, offering alternatives for kids with food allergies as well as other children for whom traditional candy is not an option. In the United States, there are more than 5 million children with food allergies and NEOFAN officials said they believe every single child deserves a fun Halloween experience.
