World Central Kitchen has re-activated #ChefsForCalifornia (which responded to the Thomas Fire in 2017) to provide quality meals to those seeking shelter from the fire.

WCK is coordinating with California’s Office of Emergency Services, the Red Cross, and the Salvation Army to oversee food relief. We’ve also partnered with fellow Food First Responders Operation BBQ Relief and Guy Fieri to provide quality meals to those in shelters.


  • VOLUNTEERS: Volunteers are needed to assist in preparation of meals and delivery. If you’re available in the Redding area, email us at to volunteer.
