McKinley primary school.

“I remember this parent who came and said ‘thank you
for what you are doing for my children. ‘This is what got me started thinking
what can I do, and how can I do it, and I know how to make restaurants ”, Cattaneo
She said.

Since then, Cattaneo has donated nearly $ 19,000 to McKinley to purchase audio equipment for his theatrical arts program.

“We are all in this together,” he said. “We all
I hope for a better future. If you want a better future, we have to start from
foundation.”

Right now,
Matteo serves breakfast and lunch, but Cattaneo hopes to expand the menu to
include dinner services in summer. The restaurant recently held a soft opening,
but the official inauguration is scheduled for March 7.
