This overarching vision that started as preventing children in motels from going to bed hungry has turned into 5,005 vulnerable children receiving a meal every night at 104 sites throughout LA and Orange Counties; 264 families have been placed in permanent housing in safe neighborhoods through our Welcome Home program, and 600+ teens have trained through the Hospitality Academy at four Anaheim High Schools. Our vision is to provide every child with the resources, love, and encouragement they need to be healthy, safe, and educated.

Meet Chef Bruno Serato
The man behind it all.
The only chef in the world serving 5,055 underprivileged children warm dinners, every night. Named one of CNN’s 10 Heroes of the Year and featured in magazines (People, Elle, Vogue, Riviera), television (CBS Evening News, CNN, Univision) and newspapers (New York Times, Los Angeles Times, OC Register) countless times. He was honored on the steps of the U.S. Capitol with a humanitarian award and perhaps his highest honor was being knighted by the Italian Government, earning him the title, Sir Bruno Serato. Today, he continues to run his highly successful Italian steakhouse and extends his generosity to many other nonprofits besides Caterina’s Club.
