Guy Fieri and Redding have a long history, and the celebrity chef has not forgotten his roots! The star cooked meals for Carr fire evacuees and first-responders!
KTLA reports, “Fieri, a Northern California native who frequented Redding as child, took a team of about 20 volunteers to Shasta College. Once there, they set up a makeshift kitchen and cooked up approximately 750 meals for both lunch and dinner on Sunday.
“My son and I, and his buddies and a bunch of mine, loaded up our caravan from wine country and drove four hours up here,” Fieri told CNN.
The host of shows such as “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” and “Guy’s Grocery Games” said his crew is working “arm and arm” with the Salvation Army, Operation BBQ Relief, local chefs and residents to prepare the meals.
“The Salvation Army has been on the ground in Redding … They got involved right off the bat,” Fieri said. “They got involved Friday, started helping folks with a place to stay, and get something to eat, and get water, and you know all those basics that we … have on a regular basis, and all of a sudden they’re gone.”
