Guy Fieri is the popular host of several mouth-watering shows on the Foot Network, including “Guy's Big Bites,” “Diners Drive-Ins and Dives,” and “Guy's Grocery Games.”

Fieri got his start on the Food Network in 2006, and since then, his signature bleach-blond spikes, tattoos, and goatee have made him a recognizable face for food lovers everywhere.

And while Fieri's “rockstar” persona makes him a favorite among a crowded sea of TV chefs, it's what viewers can't see that's all the more reason to like him.

As Country Living reports, Fieri has filmed 363 episodes of his Food Network shows to date and has invited a family from the Make-a-Wish Foundation to join him on set for every single taping.

The organization is reportedly near and dear to his heart following the loss of his sister to cancer several years ago. In 2016, Delish reported Fieri was determined to help families battling cancer anyway he could, saying at the time:

"I know what the family is going through, to some degree. I know that heartache and I see that, and if there's anything I can do to help enlighten or empower those kids, I want to do it.

Fieri rarely uses his own social media to show off his special guests, but the joy of those who get spend the day with him can't be contained:

He lends a helping hand with his young guests on the set of “Guy's Grocery Games”:

...and even has his young fans visit him at his restaurant and cook up a ticket to “Flavortown”:

Not only does he invite sick children to visit him, but he includes their siblings and families so that no one feels left out, Country Living reports.

Now that is pure class.
