On Saturday, October 20th, MOMS Club of South Boston members and families gathered together for a Teal Pumpkin Project themed Halloween Party at the South Boston Neighborhood House. The Teal Pumpkin Project is a nationwide movement that encourages offering non-food treats in addition to traditional candy/ food items to trick-or-treaters at Halloween. It is a way for children with food allergies, diabetes, celiac disease, among other medical conditions and limited diets, to enjoy a safer and happier holiday.

Children at the party enjoyed live entertainment and non-food treats in a celebration that also served to announce the MOMS Club’s involvement i n our nei ghborhood ’s annual Trick-or-Treating on Broadway. As part of this inclusive celebration, the MOMS Club of South Boston together with the South Boston Chamber of Commerce, is encouraging businesses to support the Teal Pumpkin Project. Participating businesses will display a f lyer in their window and will welcome every child by offering “please choose a candy or a toy”. We are very appreciative of the local business community for making the holiday such a special event for South Boston families this and every year!
