First Watch Amps Up Support for No Kid Hungry
Pumpkin season is just around the corner and you know you will be indulging at some point, so why not make it truly count? First Watch has announced that they will donate 10 cents to No Kid Hungry whenever a customer orders their Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast.
The Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast is a part of their new Fall seasonal menu and has proven in the past to be their most popular and expected offering. This Fall fundraiser is just a small supplement to the 25 cents that First Watch now contributes to No Kid Hungry from every kid’s meal sold all year round. First Watch has been working with the organization for nine consecutive years. No Kid Hungry works to end childhood hunger by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast. They also help families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget.
“No Kid Hungry’s mission to end childhood hunger at home is something we are proud to stand behind,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch. “One in five children struggles with hunger, and that’s unquestionably too many. We’re so humbled to work alongside this great organization and the other businesses in our communities once again for this cause. It’s the least we can do to up our contributions during September and do our part to help feed these kids where they live, learn and play.”
First Watch’s limited-time Fall menu brings back two customer favorites while introducing two new, innovative dishes. Customers can find the following seasonal offerings besides the traditional breakfast, brunch and lunch favorites at their local First Watch through Sunday, November 6:
Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast | Two fresh cage-free eggs cooked any style plus one of our signature spiced Pumpkin Pancakes and Aidells grilled all-natural Chicken & Apple Sausage.
Butternut Squash & Wild Mushroom Frittata | A classic frittata with house-roasted butternut squash, Crimini and Shiitake mushrooms, green onions and topped with Monterey Jack, Parmesan and fresh herbs. Served with lemon dressed mixed greens and a toasted ciabatta crisp.
Fig & Prosciutto Toast | Shaved prosciutto on whole grain artisan toast with fig spread, lemon ricotta cream and lemon dressed arugula. Finished with a drizzle of fig balsamic glaze and EVOO. Served with two basted fresh cage-free eggs.
Butternut Squash Bisque | Rich and creamy butternut squash soup sweetened with carrot and a touch of nutmeg. Garnished with sour cream and fresh herbs. (vegetarian)
First Watch expanded its beverage program by introducing a Fresh Juice Bar in 2015 and has since been juicing in-house daily from fresh fruits and vegetables sourced locally whenever possible. Since the program’s launch, the restaurant has extended its Fresh Juice Bar offerings, which include two permanent juices–Day Glow and Kale Tonic–and several seasonal options throughout the year. This Fall, First Watch is featuring a refreshing new beverage, available for a limited time:
Root Down | Carrot, Fuji apple, beet, lemon and organic ginger.
First Watch serves its entire menu seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The restaurant also offers customers complimentary newspapers and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
