CONCOW, Calif. - A couple in Concow has been serving meals to those in need since 2015 and when the Camp Fire destroyed their home, they continued to serve a hundred meals a day.

"It's not just to feed them, we want them to know they're loved and cared about – and there's always dessert of some kind," said Teri Rubiolo.

She and her husband, John, started "I Ams Garden" three-years before the fire and look to feed anyone in Concow who is in need of a homecooked meal.

Rubiolo, who lost her home in the fire, now lives in a trailer on her property and within a week of moving back, the couple was serving up for the Concow community once again.

Rubiolo told Action News Now the thing she misses the most is when people would come over and gather around the dining room table to enjoy a meal.

"I got a job to do, I have a purpose, I'm gonna do it," said Rubiolo. "If I'm doing what God wants me to do and I'm taking care of those and bringing his word and seed to others, he says don't worry about it I'll take care of you."

After the fire, the couple would cook all the meals in their trailer but recently they received a donated trailer for their cook kitchen from Alyssa Nolan-Cain, who builds tiny houses for Camp Fire survivors.

Along with cooking them a meal, Rubiolo offers laundry services and showers.

As for the food, local donations and private donors help keep the pantry stocked.

Meals are delivered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday by Rubiolo and her husband while they serve meals on their property the other days.

"This is family and we want them to know even if you're alone, you're not alone – and that's what we do."
