The TV host of “Guy’s Grocery Games” wrangled up a crew of chefs and friends to prepare the food next to the fire camp at the Sonoma County Fairground, the outlet reported.

This isn’t the first time Fieri has stepped up to feed Californians affected by wildfires, as he’s previously cooked for responders and evacuees of the Santa Rosa fires in 2017 and both the Carr and Camp Fires in 2018. He also organized his fellow Food Network chefs to thank 3,000 of the police officers, firefighters, EMT workers and doctors who responded in the wake of the 2017 shooting in Las Vegas.
