KYLE DINE’S NORTH AMERICAN FOOD ALLERGY AWARENESS TOUR IS COMING TO GARDENVIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

MONTREAL, JUNE  8,  2015-   Kyle Dine, an educator and musician who performs at schools across North America raising food allergy awareness, will make his first visit to Quebec on Monday, June 15.  He is scheduled to present  at three assemblies (9:20 a.m. ; 10:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.) at Gardenview Elementary School (700 Brunet Street) in St. Laurent.

Over the past six years, Dine has performed at over 300 schools for over 125,000 students. He has grown up managing his own allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, seafood and mustard. His songs help empower, support, and educate all children. 

With a guitar slung over his shoulder, an EpiPen® on his belt, and a cast of zany puppets accompanying him, tells students what they can do to help keep others with allergies safe. After growing up with multiple food allergies himself, he has a lifetime of stories and experiences that he shares with students while answering their questions. 

“Food allergies are a growing issue around the world, and I truly enjoy helping kids learn valuable lessons on inclusiveness and tolerance for others with food allergies,” says Dine,  who  educates children about the basics of food allergy including the signs and symptoms, treatment, and what people can do to help keep others with severe allergies safe.

When performing Dine uses a creative blend of self-written songs, trivia, puppets and includes plenty of time for Q&A. "I'm always amazed how engaged kids are in learning about allergies and how they can help others. It's really encouraging and keeps me inspired," Dine remarks.

Dine has released two CDs and has a highly anticipated DVD being released in June.
