Anova & Mary's Pizza Shack Partner in Launching a Sensory Friendly Restaurant Initiative

In recognition of Autism Awareness Month, Anova & Mary's Pizza Shack announce they are partnering to launch a new & innovative pilot program to provide “Sensory Friendly Kits” allowing individuals with autism & other sensory needs the opportunity to enjoy dining without feeling overwhelmed by their surroundings. The Sensory Friendly Kits will be available starting 4/22 all 11 of their Sonoma County locations.

Sensory sensitivity is a sign of autism & can affect every aspect of a person’s life...including the ability to eat at a restaurant. It provides families with a place where they can enjoy a meal out knowing they have access to tools to aid in processing sensory stimuli & the assurance that Anova has provided sensory training to the entire staff at all locations. The kits will be available upon request to use while dining & include noise reduction ear muffs, a 3lb weighted lap pad, mini zone chart & several different sensory toys to help promote a more calming environment.
