The world is going through a tough time right now, so it's important that people take care of each other and do everything they can to help one another.

Guy Fieri knows that, and is putting his money where his mouth is.

He's helping people out during this crisis in a great way.

After teaming up with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, Fieri is raising money for $500 grants to give restaurant workers.

"And let me tell you something, they are the hardest working, most real deal workers you’ve ever met…the heartbeats of their communities,"
