Guy Fieri Has Raised Over $21.5 Million To Help Restaurant Workers

From Flavortown to Favortown! Guy Fieri has done a lot this year to help restaurant workers during the pandemic. It’s been revealed that Fieri has raised over $21.5 million to assist unemployed restaurant workers with his Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.

Fieri was able to receive some of the fund’s biggest donations from mega companies like PepsiCo. and UberEats.

The fund helped around 43,000 people in the restaurant industry receive $500 grants for assistance.

The host of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives has also produced a documentary, Restaurant Hustle 2020, spotlighting the challenges the industry continues to face. It airs on the Food Network in December, which is also when the self-appointed mayor of Flavortown opens his delivery-only chain, Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Kitchen, in almost 200 locations, including Los Angeles and Minneapolis. Dishes include the Real Cheezy burger, which comes with Fieri’s signature donkey sauce.
