What a stand-up guy (pun intended)! Guy Fieri put his cooking talents to good use when he surprised firefighters dealing with the California wildfires with a home-cooked meal.
The Butte County Sheriff took to Twitter on Sunday, Nov. 11 to share photos of the Food Network star with the police force. “Guy Fieri made a surprise visit to serve dinner to everyone at the law enforcement staging area at Butte College. Thank you so much Guy for filling our bellies and lifting our spirits. #ButteSheriff #CampFire,” the caption read. Over pulled pork and other yummy sides, the 50-year-old individually thanked all the servicemen fighting the deadly flames on the west coast.

Fans immediately took to Twitter to praise Guy for his courageous act of kindness. “What a class act!” one user wrote. Another added, “Thanks for taking care of those who are taking care of us.” One user even told their own personal story with Guy. “Seeing that he did this once again is amazing. I experienced a car fire and when he came out he lifted so many spirits making us know that we can get through it. Once again he’s doing it and this is how you can tell he’s a great person,” they shared.
Guy even took to Instagram to further than first responders. ”In today’s tumultuous world, it’s amazing to see our firefighters, military, law enforcement, and first responders come together to rescue our communities devastated by fire. So many great people stepping up to take care of one another,” he wrote.
California holds a special place in Guy’s heart, as he built his family home there. “I built this house to be a place where the kids could hang out with their pals,” he once told Closer Weekly in an exclusive interview. “We have a dirt-bike track, basketball hoops, a pool, pinball machines — you name it!”
In addition to his wife, Lori, and two sons, Hunter, 22, and Ryder, 13, Guy also made the home welcoming for his own parents. “I built a house for them in my backyard,” Guy shared. “My dad is my hero, and to have my parents so close is special. You’ve got to surround yourself with great people.” Perhaps that motto is what has made Guy such a great person today!
