Our purpose in life may still be a mystery, but it certainly includes being useful, honorable, compassionate and lifting people's spirit. While reaching out to the victims of the California wildfire, several individuals have lived out this cause, and our favorite celebrity chefs have joined their number.
50-year-old Guy Fieri teamed up with other famous chefs, like Jose Andres, Tyler Florence, and Jenn Louis, to help wildfire victims in California have a happy Thanksgiving.
These chefs have decided to put their own Thanksgiving plans aside to serve a whopping 15,000 meals to those who have been displaced by the widespread destruction.

Chef Andres shared a video saying that their collaboration is aimed at showing love and support to the wildfire victims as well as serving them with one plate of food at a time; they have three kitchens and a barbecue spot to serve this purpose.
Making 15,000 meals is undoubtedly an enormous job. Therefore, chefs Fieri, Andres, Florence, and Louis are being helped by other ace chefs in California and some other 800 volunteers.

The California wildfire, which started on the 8th of November, has swept through the northern and southern ends of the state and several communities have been affected, including Paradise, Centreville, and Yankee Hill. While the fire in Southern California has been stopped, the fire in the North still burns.

The campfire, which is reportedly the deadliest in California history, has taken the lives of at least 83 persons, razed down 18,000 houses and has left several hundreds of people missing.
