Guy Fieri deep-fried his way into the hearts of millions with his enormous appetite and even bigger personality. From Diners, Dine-Ins and Dives to Guy’s Grocery Games, the spikey-headed foodie has created some of the most savory Food Network shows in existence. But for someone so impressively loud, Fieri stays surprisingly quiet about his extensive charity work.
Here’s something the platinum-haired chef doesn’t yell directly into the camera, Fieri makes sure any perishables left after filming Guy’s Grocery Games are donated to a nearby shelter. Oh, and after the 2018 Carr Wildfire devastated California, Guy and his team prepared and distributed over 2,000 meals to first responders. Recently, the Mayor of Flavortown raised $21 million for restaurant workers affected by COVID. Fieri has experienced a huge amount of success in the world of food, and he’s determined to spread both the wealth and the garlic bread.
Fieri is a seriously good dude, despite what the alarming number of memes may suggest. Last week, the Food Network star showed up once again when a crowd of hungry heroes needed him most. Whether it’s his love for his home county or he’s just trying to make up for wearing that ridiculous flame shirt (you know which one I’m talking about), Fieri is back and helping out with yet another California wildfire.
Around 2,800 emergency workers dropped everything to fight Northern California’s Glass Fire, a job that’s both dangerous and extremely taxing. People were evacuated, homes were destroyed, but these heroes stayed to mitigate the damage.
Once again, Fieri stepped up to be the heroes’ hero. The chef and his team assembled around 2,000 meals for the exhausted workers and distributed them at the Glass Fire Base Camp. Nothing hits quite like a heaping plate of pasta, garlic bread, and salad after a long day’s work.
“A MILLION THANKS to @GuyFieri and his talented team for bringing his delicious delights to #GlassFire base camp!” Cal Fire LNU shared on Twitter. “He made a lot of people very happy & full today!”

Fieri now lives in Santa Rosa California, but growing up in parts of Sonoma and Napa counties means that the fire-ravaged cities are still close to his heart. Fieri may be the mayor of Flavortown, but to emergency workers in California, he’ll always be the MVP (Most Valuable Pasta-distributor).
