Guy Fieri Feeds Over 1,000 Evacuees of California Wildfires With Almost No Publicity
Some think the Spiky One is putting Elon Musk to shame.
The Mayor of Flavortown is giving back.
SF Gate reports that Fieri and a crew from the non-profit Operation BBQ Relief served meals to 1,400 victims and first responders on Sunday.
That entailed Fieri tossing out signed Lean Cuisines into a hungry crowd, as if he were chucking T-shirts at a rock concert.

“We loaded up our caravan from the wine country, and drove four hours up here.” Fieri told CNN.
“[We’re] just working arm in arm with the Salvation Army, and local chefs and residents and everybody, just helping out the evacuees. There’s like 36,000 folks that have been displaced, so it’s quite a program.”
Fieri added that he was “trying to keep the menu interesting.”
Video of the frosted-tipped humanitarian tossing Lean Cuisines promptly went viral, causing one Twitter user to sing his praises over Elon Musk.
Guy Fieri has, with no publicity, been feeding 5000 wildfire evacuees, proving that he is a much more decent and altruistic person than Elon Musk.
