Our 12th Annual KFI PastaThon to benefit Caterina's Club is going great!
As of right now we have raised more than $1,018,438 and 21,725 pounds of pasta & sauce! THANK YOU to YOU, our amazing family of KFI listeners that make this effort possible every year.
BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET....we have a HUGE number to beat from last year ($1,033,000) and we are almost there!
For those who don't know, Chef Bruno Serato started Caterina's Club, a charity named after his beloved mother, and began providing meals in 2005 to children living with their families in local low-income motels because there was no way for them to make hot meals. Over the last 16 years, Chef Bruno has expanded his project to provide more than 25,000 meals per week in 100 locations in 30 cities across Southern California.
But it's not just that, Caterina's Club is helping to break the cycle of poverty with a three-pronged approach. Not only do they feed the kids now, but they help families get back into stable home environments and provide job training for youth so they have the skills they need to work in the hospitality industry.
To date, they have provided over 8 million meals, helped get 255 families back into stable homes, and graduated over 600 teens from their Hospitality Academy.
This year, thanks to our amazing partners, Smart & Final, Barilla, and Wendy's locations in Southern California, we are raising funds, pasta, and sauce to help Chef Bruno continue his work.
