Drew Carey Speaks For First Time On His Free Meals For Writers Program Now That WGA Strike Is Settled

Drew Carey today saluted the writers who thanked him for the meals he provided strikers at Bob’s Big Boy and Swingers during the WGA work stoppage. It was his first public comments on his charitable efforts.

“I deeply appreciate all the love and thanks. It (was worth) every dime. But if you really want to thank someone for those meals, thank Bruce Helford and all the Drew Carey Show writers.
They helped make me rich enough to afford it. No writers, no $. Simple as that.”

The emcee of The Price Is Right didn’t previously comment in the media about his decision to cover the tabs at the two restaurants since the May strike began. Thus, no one knows the cost, but estimates of $10,000 per week have been bandied in the media.

A guest book was placed at Bob’s for all the hungry scribes to show their appreciation.

Carey, who executive produced and starred in his eponymous sitcom from 1995-2004, just debuted the next season of The Price Is Right from his new headquarters in Glendale.
