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."
The statement on the RERF site reads: "We are proud to report that the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF) is helping more than 43,000 restaurant workers who suffered financially due to the COVID-19 health and economic crisis. We also want to thank our partner and industry icon, Guy Fieri, and the more than 50 companies and organizations and 15,000 individual donors for making RERF possible. Together, we raised more than $21.5 million for RERF and showed the nation just how important restaurant workers are to our industry and the communities where we work and live."
Fieri received 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.
