What about First Breakfast? is a first-of-its-kind Minecraft marathon that aims to recreate Lord of the Rings moments inside of Minecraft, live on Twitch, all to benefit No Kid Hungry.

NOVEMBER 23, 2021 - What about First Breakfast? unofficially reimagines the time-honored fan tradition of marathon-viewing all six films based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s writing--The Hobbit trilogy and the Lord of the Rings trilogy--inside of Minecraft, all to fundraise for No Kid Hungry and support their mission to help feed the millions of children in the United States who are facing hunger. help feed the 1 in 6 kids in America struggling with hunger. Streamed live on Twitch for 24 hours, this chat-driven adventure drops ImpulseSV into the legendary Minecraft Middle Earth server where he will explore over 10 years of fan-built moments and re-live dozens of scenes from the films.

ImpulseSV, known for his prolific Minecraft YouTube channel and long-running role in the iconic HermitCraft server, will travel across the dangerous realm of Minecraft Middle Earth to collect seven hobbit meals, raising money to fight childhood hunger every step of the way.

In addition to the expansive world built by the Minecraft Middle Earth community, this stream features dozens of custom creature and character models, original voiceover, donation-triggered moments, and a Helm’s Deep battle pitting ImpulseSV against 30 Twitch viewers.

The event even has special guest appearances from real Lord of the Rings cast members. Sarah McLeod, the actress who played Rosie Cotton, sweetheart to Samwise Gamgee, joins the stream for an hour to answer chat questions and play alongside ImpulseSV.

At any moment, viewers can use donations to send aid, trigger events, or revive Boromir so that he can be filled with arrows yet again. Though the stream itself will be lighthearted, the cause is serious: millions of children will go hungry unless we help.

“The idea that there are children out there struggling to get food, any food, that hits me hard,” ImpulseSV says. “No one’s kids should go through that.”

The event begins at 12pm EST on November 26, 2021 and will broadcast live on Twitch for 24 hours. Visit the event Tiltify page to watch and to donate. Every $1 donated can help connect children to 10 meals. Preview what the event has in store with this exclusive trailer:
