This will be the East Coast premiere of Tastes Like Freedom!

Tastes Like Freedom is the remarkable story of Camp Blue Spruce, the only summer camp in the country devoted to kids with life-threatening food allergies. Food is often a constant source of worry and anxiety for these kids, but this unique camp gives them a sleep-away camp experience that helps them learn the skills to manage their food allergies and live full, independent lives!

The film features a diverse array of footage from camp, including an outdoor square dance, swimming and canoeing, and a challenge course, as well as interviews with campers, parents. It also includes interviews with Scott Sicherer, MD, a professor of pediatrics at the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and Kyle Dine, a musician that performs food allergy awareness songs at schools across North America.
