“This is the least we can do,” Fieri told KTVU. “We’re so happy to do it. We’re so sorry for friends who have lost homes. There’s a lot of really good people coming together.”
Fieri told KRON that people from all backgrounds came to help. He also praised Operation BBQ Relief, a nonprofit that works to bring comfort food to displaced people.
"It's terrible in so many ways, but it's wonderful to see great people coming together," Fieri said to KRON.
"We fed 1,200 just for lunch, we just did 1,500 for dinner, we're getting ready to send 250 out on the fire line," Fieri said. He expected to make about 5,000 meals each for lunch and dinner the next day.
“We’re going to be here as long as it takes to make sure that everybody’s taken care of,” he said.
More than 2,800 residences in Santa Rosa have been destroyed by the fire.
