Celebrity chefs Guy Fieri and José Andrés help feed thousands of California wildfire victims
Celebrity chefs Guy Fieri and José Andrés might be quite busy with their work schedules, but that did not deter the two from sparing some time to cook delicious meals for thousands of people evacuated due to California wildfires.
There are 15 serious wildfires burning across California as of Tuesday, with 12,300 firefighters battling the infernos. The flames have scorched more than 280,000 acres across the state, forcing more than 44,000 residents to evacuate.
Fieri – a Santa Rosa resident who also served barbecue to victims and first responders of last year’s wine country fires – headed to Redding on Saturday. Two days later, members of Andrés’ nonprofit World Central Kitchen joined the “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” host and fellow food first responders Operation BBQ Relief to provide meals for those in shelters and to first responders.
