A panel of judges selected Fieri due his work with several charities and helping to highlight the struggles that chefs and restaurants faced during the pandemic. In a press release, the NRAEF cited the Guy Fieri Foundation for serving more than 120,000 meals from its Rescue Trailer during the California wildfires.
Fieri said, "I'm truly honored to receive the Thad and Alice Eure Ambassador of Hospitality award from the National Restaurant Association and the Educational Foundation. Restaurants feed more than just our stomachs, they nourish our communities, and supporting the hard-working people behind these businesses is more important now than ever," said Fieri.
