It’s almost fall and time for our 8th annual Richmond Food Allergy Friendly Trunk or Treat!

Dress up in your costumes and decorate your trunk with a theme, bring a bowl of allergy-free candy or non food treats, and join us for a Food Allergy Friendly Trunk or Treat!

We will be excluding the main 8 allergens: Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Shellfish, Soy, and Wheat.

Please make sure that the candy is not processed in a facility with or on shared equipment with any of the 8 major allergens listed.

All packaging must be present at the trunk or treat to be double-checked by an organizer before we begin. Non-food allergy kids are also welcome to participate!

Send an email to shgatewood@gmail.com by October 14th and register with your name, email address, number and ages of children attending, their allergies, and the treats you will be bringing so that we can get a head count for everyone and avoid duplicates.

Click on the “Resources” link at the top of this page to get treat suggestions and info on how to check labels for food allergy contaminants.


  • 3:45 – 4:00: arrival and set up
  • 3:45 – 4:10 pm: double check labels
  • 4:10: group photo
  • 4:15 pm: START!

Looking forward to sharing this fun holiday with you in a safe way for our kids!
