Hosted by Mica Burton, an Overwatch esports caster and internet personality, the Crunch Time live stream took place on December 19, 2019, and featured the world-renowned chef Matty Matheson alongside notable Twitch streamers, JerichoCookingForNoobs, and TheHungerService, who participated in a two-hour live cook-off challenge where they prepared a variety of dishes and were judged by the host as well as the audience via Twitch chat. Throughout the stream, contestants took on light-hearted challenges such as taking a shot of lemon juice and cooking with handcuffs on for 3 minutes when high-dollar donations were made. 

"Everyone has a role to play in the fight to end childhood hunger," said Carla Warner, associate director of Revenue Innovation at No Kid Hungry. "Twitch's Crunch Time livestream proves that it's easy to make a big difference for kids."

The 2-hour live stream successfully raised a total of $10,037.00 USD in donations. For those who missed the live stream and would still like to make a donation, you can donate by visiting here.
