Feeding the Children
Providing hot, nutritious food to children all over the world
What we do?
Harness the power of pasta! The vision of Caterina’s Club to end global hunger begins with pasta. We believe that this sustainable food is the answer to provide the world with the energy we need. We are taking over hunger one city at a time! The Feeding the Children program first launched in 2005 and began with one warm meal. Chef Bruno gave hot pasta to an at-risk youth then, and now serves over 25,025 fresh, nutritionally balanced meals to underprivileged children every week.
Caterina’s Club identifies food insecure children who are at high-risk of malnutrition and are extremely underprivileged in our communities. We ensure these children have access to warm nutritional meals nightly by delivering the meals to their after-school programs. Our dedication knows no bounds as we are serving in 29 different cities at 89 different locations spread throughout Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego counties. We are proud to be making a difference in the lives of these children, their families, and hope to only expand even further.

“In my 26 plus years of Boys and Girls Club work I have never met a more generous person. Bruno is relentless when it comes to figuring out ways to help those less fortunate. I have been honored to work beside him and even more honored to call him my friend.”
