Sir Bruno Serato, a CNN Hero, will speak on “Feeding The Kids In America”

In 2005, Bruno Serato and his mother, Caterina, visited the Boys and Girls Club of Anaheim down the street from his Anaheim White House restaurant, where his mother noticed that there was a 6-year old boy eating potato chips for dinner, because his family couldn't afford a proper meal. She insisted that Bruno make some pasta for the child. They soon realized that there were many more of these hungry “motel children,” so Bruno began making pasta for 72 children, 5 nights a week, giving birth to their program “Feeding the Kids in America.” Bruno Serato is the only chef in the world serving 1200 underprivileged children warm dinners every night. Named one of CNN's 10 Heroes of the Year and featured in People, Elle, Vogue and Riviera magazines, as well as on CBS Evening News, CNN, Univision, NY Times, LA Times and OC Register, Serato was honored on the steps of the US Capitol with a humanitarian award. 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.
