First Watch Donates $600,000+ to the V Foundation

First Watch raised $600,000+ for the V Foundation for Cancer Research over the course of 2022. The donation is an effort of the partnership to reach the V Foundation’s goal to achieve Victory Over Cancer®. 

To raise the funds, First Watch donated 25 cents from every kid’s meal sold to the V Foundation’s Dick Vitale Fund for Pediatric Cancer. The Vitale Fund raises awareness for and funds pediatric cancer research, with 100% of donations going directly to research grants. 

“Just being kind is a way of life at First Watch, and it’s been inspiring to see how our youngest customers have taken this to heart of the last year, with kids helping kids — meal by meal — to power a movement to find cures and change lives,” says Chris Tomasso, President and CEO of First Watch. 

In addition to the donations from kid’s meals, First Watch hosted local pre-opening Friends & Family events for new restaurants to join the V Foundation mission. At these events, customers were given a free entre and beverage, with the opportunity to donate the value of their experience to the V Foundation.
