Steph and Ayesha Curry help to donate 1M meals to students

“The world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of the coronavirus.”
Steph and Ayesha Curry are urging people to donate to food banks to help feed students who usually rely on school for meals.

Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry and his wife, Ayesha, have joined the growing list of NBA players who are stepping up to help families negatively impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

What We Know:

  • Schools across the Bay Area are closing due to the threat of coronavirus, and for many low-income students, the school lunch is the most they will eat in a day. That’s why the Curry’s are lending a helping hand to underprivileged families who are worried about how they’re going to feed their children.
  • Through their foundation, Eat. Learn. Play, the couple are donating to the Alameda County Community Food Bank to provide more than 1 million meals to local students who cannot attend schools due to coronavirus shutdowns, CNN reports.

  • The couple announced the plan on Friday in a Twitter video, amid reports that Oakland’s Unified School District will be temporarily closed through April 5.
  • Curry stated, “The world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of the coronavirus”. They expressed their concern after the Oakland school district closed its doors indefinitely, so they wanted to reach out on behalf of the kids that rely on their daily services and help in any way they could.

Several NBA players and teams have also vowed to support arena workers that will be hit the hardest during the league’s current suspension such as Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who was the first to announce that he will pay all workers inside the American Airlines Center.
