"Coming into Ventura County, everyone has been so welcoming, I feel a part of the community," restaurant owner, Sadaf Nezhad said. "I did some research and called around and I found out the firefighters are camping at Conejo Creek Park, so that's where we are going to take a big lunch to the fire fighters."

Nezhad's restaurant is only 8 months old. She thought a warm lunch would be a great way to give back and show gratitude to all the firefighters fighting blazes to protect homes and properties in her new community.
