Kyle Dine is a food allergic individual who has turned his diagnosis into several positive impacts for the food allergy community. Growing up with multiple food allergies, Kyle experienced first-hand the challenges that food allergies play during adolescence. After experiencing a harrowing anaphylactic reaction in his early twenties, he changed his career path in order to create tools and resources to help people avoid allergic reactions and improve overall quality of life. He is trusted food allergy educator and musician who performs engaging allergy awareness assemblies in elementary schools across North America. Along with his “Kyle Dine & Friends” DVD, which was funded through the allergy community on Kickstarter, his music and live assembly contain empowering, supportive, and educational messages for children with or without food allergies. His educational efforts guided him to working with Food Allergy Canada on their programs, resources and advocacy. Since 2008, he has specialized in the development of materials for youth and led projects such as elementary and high school awareness programs, educational books, videos, and the Allergy Pals online mentorship program. An avid traveller, Kyle founded in 2006 to help people travel with allergies by providing cards with professional translations of allergens in foreign languages. He earned a master’s degree in 2019 at Queen’s University for innovation management and entrepreneurship, and is currently relaunching his allergy travel resources under the new name Equal Eats. His goal is to help people with dietary restrictions enjoy food safely all around the world.
