The celebrity chef joined dozens of people in providing food, water, and shelter to victims.

A deadly fire broke out in a high-rise apartment building in West London early Wednesday morning, with six confirmed deaths and the number expecting to rise, CNN reported. Many have since come to aid victims of the Grenfell Tower fire with food and shelter, including celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

Oliver announced in an Instagram post that he’s offering food and water at his restaurant Jamie's Italian in Westfield.

“To any of the 100's of FAMILIES effected by this terrible fire at Grenfell Tower Notting hill today, you are all welcome to come hang out in my restaurant and be fed and watered by my Jamie’s Italian team. We are in the Westfield just around the corner,” Oliver wrote in the caption. “Food and drink free of charge so just go and speak to my manager Juan and we will sort you out and give you some love .... this is for victims of the fire our thoughts, love and prayers are with you all big love jamie x x x x”

#GrenfellTower is currently trending on Twitter, with many people sharing Oliver’s initiative.



Oliver isn’t the only celebrity chipping in to help those affected by the fire — Top Gear star Jeremy Clarkson has urged people to donate clothing to victims in a Facebook post.

“Everything that was clean in my wardrobe has been donated,” Clarkson wrote. “Please try and do the same thing.”
