Celebrity chef Guy Fieri and his son have been in Redding where wildfires have devastated the area.
Fieri wanted to help and brought in efforts to feed victims and first responders of the fires happening in the area.
Fieri told CNN on Sunday that he was working “arm in arm” with a team of 20 volunteers, the Salvation Army, Operation Barbecue Relief, local chefs and residents to be able to feed everyone.
“We’re in tough times as a world with all of the things going on,” Fieri told CNN. “And boy, you take a moment like this and you really see what America is made of. A lot of great people coming together.”
The Carr fire started over a week ago and has set almost 100,000 acres in Shasta County in flames. The blaze is in the top ten most destructive wildfires in California.
