It’s a simple fact: A child’s chance to reach their full potential starts with getting enough food to eat today. But in America, more than 12 million children live in “food insecure” homes, meaning these families are unable to consistently access enough nutritious foods for each member to lead a healthy, prosperous life. For every 1 in 6 children in the United States, an empty stomach is the norm.
That’s why we donate 25 cents from every kids meal sold throughout the year to this great organization, and that’s why, for the 10th year in a row, First Watch is upping our contribution to this great cause during the month of September for the organization’s “Dine for No Kid Hungry” campaign. For every Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast sold in all our restaurants throughout the month, a portion of the proceeds will benefit children who lack the nutrition they deserve.
Why? Well, when kids are hungry, it affects their education, harms their health and can easily rob their chances at a bright future. At First Watch, we believe that no kid should face the day on an empty stomach. It’s that simple.
That’s why we’re asking you to tune in this Wednesday, September 4th, to No Kid Hungry LIVE with Busy Philipps! Co-Hosted by Award-Winning Chef Curtis Stone, the 90-minute variety show will air live on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube with interactive contests, prizes (including a one-of-a-kind First Watch experience!) and surprise guest appearances.
The livestreamed variety show will air from 7 to 8:30 p.m. EDT on Wednesday. Join us, because together, we can put an end to childhood hunger in the United States.
