'World Central Kitchen' works to feed first responders fighting Maria Fire in Ventura County

The non-profit 'World Central Kitchen,' founded by celebrity chef Jose Andres, has set up shop in Ventura County preparing food for first responders on the front lines of the Maria Fire burning near Santa Paula.

The organization tweeted photos featuring the St. Bonaventure High School football team making sandwiches and "hearty chili," and also of volunteers handing food to evacuees and even a horse "that was found fleeing the smoke & flames."

Organizers say they have Friday covered with the number of volunteers that showed up, but say there's still plenty of opportunities to volunteer this weekend and invite anyone interested to signup at https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/3061735/false#/invitation.

The World Central Kitchen Chef Relief Team activated on Oct. 25 in response to the devastating wildfires burning in Northern and Southern California. 

Tyler Florence, Chris Cosentino, Guy Fieri, Traci des Jardins, Michael Mina, and David Nayfield are just a few of the celebrity chefs that have joined the Chef Relief Team in California.
