Fieri, whose hometown is south of Redding in Sonoma County, drove from Napa Valley to Redding over the weekend with his son and a group of their friends to help feed some of the 10,000 evacuees who have fled their homes. The chef shared on Twitter that he and his crew were teamed up with the Salvation Army to serve the meals.

Fieri wasn’t the only good Samaritan helping those affected by the fire.

A 2-year-old was seen on video handing burritos to hard-working firefighters so they could refuel before the tough day’s work ahead.

The toddler’s uncle is a Cal Fire engineer, KFSN-TV reported.

Fieri praised the community for its resilience amid the natural disaster.

“It is unbelievable to see what folks are going through, but also how great this community is,” Fieri told KFSN. “It is great to see how all these folks have come together with the Salvation Army. We are in tough times in the world, with all the things going on, and boy, you take a moment like this, and you really see what America’s made of, a lot of great people coming together.”

Fieri did the same last year, cooking up to 5,000 meals a day for evacuees and fire personnel when wildfires tore through California’s wine country.

The Carr Fire, only one of 17 fires currently burning through California, has killed six people and destroyed more than 700 homes. Please join Faithwire in continuing to pray for all those affected by the blaze.
