Guy Fieri Is Personally Handing Out Lunch To First Responders

What a treat for these healthcare heroes!

First responders in California got a free ticket to Flavortown this week and a unique souvenir to help them remember the trip.

Food Network icon and celebrity chef Guy Fieri brought his massive food truck to three different hospitals and handed out thousands of free lunches this week to workers on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees at Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center and Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital — all in Fieri’s home area of Sonoma County, California — were given meals made personally by the chef and his team.

At Memorial Hospital alone, Fieri handed out about 1,200 meals on May 13, according to The Press Democrat. He even signed each carryout box with a marker, along with a short message of thanks.

That same day, the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” star wrote on Instagram that his team had given out 600 meals at Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital, along with a photo of the folks helping prepare food in his mobile kitchen.
