Steph and Ayesha Curry are elite members of NBA royalty, and are generous and supporters of those in need. With the COVID pandemic leaving many people out of work and jolting the economy, in conjunction with the Alameda County Community Food Bank and Oakland Unified School District, the Currys launched the Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation to help deliver food to families that are struggling to feed themselves in the community.
“We know the world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of coronavirus and we just found out that the Oakland Unified School District is closing the doors for the foreseeable future, so we want to intercede on behalf of the kids that rely on the daily services and try to help any way we can,” Curry explains.
Since then, after teaming up with world-renowned Chef Jose Andres, founder of World Central Kitchen, the Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation has gone from serving 4,000 meals each week to 300,000. In total, 15 million meals have been delivered, and counting!
