Chef Jason Alley of Comfort and Bingo Beer Co. restaurants will be on will be on the Food Network this month.

Alley is competing on "Guy's Grocery Games" - a competition cooking show hosted by celebrity chef Guy Fieri.

Alley is one of four competitors tasked with creating the winning dish using five ingredients or less on a $10 budget. 

The shopping takes place in a grocery store called Flavortown Market, and of course there are obstacles along the way, such as core cooking ingredients that are out of stock.

The episode featuring Alley is entitled “Kitchen Heroes” and focuses on charitable restaurants.

"Charity is important at Flavortown Market, where most of the unused food is donated to local food shelters after each competition. With that in mind, Guy Fieri decides to showcase chefs who are giving back to their own communities every day -- and enjoy a little competition, too," according to Food Network. "He challenges the chefs to flip a dessert into a high-end dinner, and then they have to create customer favorites with crazy ingredients. The kitchen hero who wins the final round gets to shop Flavortown for up to $20,000."

Alley's downtown Richmond restaurant Comfort (which he owns with business partner Michele Jones) announced in February 2018 that it would donated all of its net proceeds to Feed More, which serves more than 200,000 people in central Virginia by providing meals and other food-related services.

The “Kitchen Heroes” episode of "Guy's Grocery Games" airs Wednesday, June 26 at 9 p.m. on the Food Network.
