Anaheim White House chef and owner Bruno Serato has made it a priority to help kids living in nearby hotels.

In 2005, thanks to a push from his mom, he started a nonprofit, to support the Boys and Girls Club of Anaheim, feeding pasta dishes to those less fortunate.

“Mom taught me the right things, no children should go to bed hungry, I’ve been doing it for seven years and it is my passion today,” said Serato.  “I opened my own foundation, which is Caterina’s foundation, the name of my mom and the checks and donations I get, everything goes to the children.”

Bruno SeratoThe program has grown since it started in 2005.  Now Bruno is serving 300 kids, 7 days a week.

So far, he’s has fed more than 350,000 kids.

But Serato can’t do it alone.  He hopes others will follow his lead.  In fact, he’s already contacted the president of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

“I sent him a letter, sent him a description, how to do it, the cost any chef can do it, if you send to 4000 clubs in the country and their own chefs in the area we’ll take care of feeding the kids in America,”  Serato said.
