Local Chef Donates Food Network Winnings to 3 Non-Profits

Posted: Updated:
Urban Roots is one of three local non-profits who will share more than $10,000 won by a local chef on the Food Network.

Chef Mark Estee, seen on the left, competed in and won an episode of Grocery Games hosted by Guy Fieri.

He will donate the $10,500 prize to Urban Roots, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and the Greenhouse Project.

The episode, called "Marshmallow Madness" airs Monday night at 7pm on the Food Network.

“I competed for Reno and am thrilled this platform provided an opportunity to support causes I believe in,” Estee said. “I see these organizations working tirelessly in our community and can attest to the positive impact they have had.”

This is the second time in four years Estee has appeared on a Guy Fieri show, both of which aired on Food Network. Estee and Fieri first met when Estee’s Burger Me! was featured on Diners Drive-In’s and Dives. Later, Fieri ranked the Italian Stallion burger among the top 10 in the country.
