Bantam + Biddy's Crescent Avenue location is hosting an Autism Speaks Charity Night April 1. Stop by after 5 p.m. and know that 10 percent of all proceeds will benefit Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Bantam + Biddy's co-owner, Shaun Doty, actively supports causes related to autism.
According to Autism Speaks, every 11 minutes another family discovers their child has autism. The Autism Society Georgia states that autism is often referred to as a spectrum disorder, meaning that the symptoms and characteristics of autism can present themselves in a wide variety of combinations, from mild to severe. Although autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors, children can exhibit any combination of behaviors with any degree of severity.
Some children with autism benefit from a gluten and casein-free diet, which is why the menu at Bantam + Biddy includes a number of gluten-free options, as well as high quality meats and seasonal sides. The term fast casual applies to the cuisine and the restaurant itself because it fills that space between fast food and fine dining. While the restaurant is kid friendly, it is also a great option for a sit down lunch and dinner that is served up fast.
Whether you know someone with autism, or just want to help support the cause, stop by for dinner on April 1. Every dollar makes a difference and goes towards medical research to determine the elusive cause of autism.
