Guy Fieri has a place in all of our hearts, I think it’s fair to say at this point.
The celebrity chef is known for consistently going out of his way to help others – not to mention the fact that he’s a hell of a cook and a hardworking man to boot.
Fieri has once again made headlines after cooking for first responders fighting on the front lines against the Northern California wildfire.
As per a Facebook post by Murrieta Fire and Rescue, the chef and restaurateur made over 1,000 pounds of pulled pork sandwiches on Tuesday for the brave men and women tackling the Dixie Fire.
The fire is currently raging across five counties in Northern California, and so the Murrieta Fire and Rescue Department, from Southern California, sent a team to help the effort.
Fieri was photographed with Battalion Chief Mike Ramos, but other fire departments took to social media to praise the chef for his selfless act in cooking them food.
The San Jose Fire Department tweeted photos of Fieri alongside a number of its firefighters at the Dixie fire’s base camp in Susanville.
The tweet read: “It’s a challenging & rewarding experience for our members. Big thanks to @GuyFieri for providing meals to crews at the #DixieFire base camp today.”
All told, Fieri made meals for 2,200 first responders with the aid of 25 volunteers.
Fieri said: “There’s a lot of first responders who can’t make it to the base camp.
“So we sent it to the fire lines. We sent it to a lot of the sheriff’s department and CHP that were out blocking roads.“
Reports say the Dixie fire, the single largest fire in California history, began on July 14 and has spread across some 735,064 acres. As of yesterday afternoon, it was 45% contained.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Fieri has lent his services in support of vital causes.
Only last year did the ‘Mayor of Flavortown’ feed 2,774 firefighters from the Sonoma-Lake Napa Unit of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, as well as cook for responders and evacuees of the Santa Rosa fires in 2017 and the Carr and Camp Fires of 2018.
I don’t know about you, but I’m such a big fan of Guy Fieri! What an incredible human being he is.
All our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the Dixie fire.
