California’ wildfires have displaced families, destroyed properties and tested people’s mettle. The largest fire to sweep across California, called The Camp Fire, has demolished an entire town and is considered the most destructive fire in the state’s history.
Volunteers have donated water for the workers who have left behind their own families to save others, risking their lives while doing so. They’ve shown up to help out.
Master chef and Food Network star Guy Fieri whipped up some amazing, nourishing and replenishing food including pulled pork and served helpers at the law enforcement staging area at Butte College. They were so surprised and grateful!
This isn’t the first time that he’s carried out this type of selfless act though. He’s always been willing to pitch in however he can in times of emergencies.
This past summer he teamed up with chef Jose Andreas to help feed evacuees and emergency crews in Redding, California during the Carr Fire. A longtime resident of Santa Rosa, California, it breaks Guy’s heart to see the devastation repeatedly blanketing his state.
He could stay in his kitchen and just send money. But that’s not his way of doing things; he has to get out there and help, walking among the workers thanking them.
Our @WCKitchen Relief Team is on the ground in Redding, California to serve the #CarrFire evacuee shelters & emergency crews! Coordinating with @Cal_OES @RedCross @SalvationArmyUS to deliver hot meals with our Food First Responder partners @GuyFieri @OpBBQRelief! More soon… pic.twitter.com/16j2eIw5uu

The Auburn Police Department gave a special shout out to the chef, grateful for his generosity.
“Thank you Guy for your time, support and great food!”
How wonderful that Guy took time out of his day to give back to the selfless men and women dedicating themselves to saving others!
