April is National Autism Acceptance Month, and Tao Group Hospitality is celebrating and supporting individuals with autism. On Tuesday, March 28th, Tao Group Hospitality Cares hosted a kick-off event at TAO Downtown in New York City. The event was filled with fun activities, including salad and pizza making, storytelling, and a tour of the kitchen with Chef Ralph Scamardella.
The event was attended by students from Eden 2 Programs and our work-study program through P226M, who had the opportunity to learn new skills and have fun while doing so. Salad and pizza making allowed the students to get creative in the kitchen, while storytelling helped them develop their communication skills and meet team members of Tao Group Hospitality. The grand tour of the kitchen with Chef Ralph Scamardella was a highlight of the day, as the students learned about the inner workings of a busy restaurant kitchen.

Tao Group Hospitality Cares is committed to supporting autism acceptance and education. As part of our efforts, we have partnered with Eden 2 Programs, a nonprofit organization that provides education and services for individuals with autism. Our work-study program provides individuals with autism the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and learn new skills in a supportive environment. We also have sensory bags in conjunction with KultureCity that help those with autism enjoy a family dinner at our locations.
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, and we are proud to support National Autism Acceptance Month. Through our partnership with Eden 2 Programs and our work-study program, we hope to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals with autism and their families.
In conclusion, the kick-off event at TAO Downtown was a success, and we are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate National Autism Acceptance Month with the community. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Eden 2 Programs and supporting autism awareness and education throughout the month and beyond.
