NBA Star Stephen Curry plans to give one million free meals to students during the school shutdown and COVID-19 lockdown.
Stephen Curry is an NBA player for the Golden State Warriors. The two-time Most Valuable Player has always been open about his Christian faith. No wonder how his heart goes out for those being affected by the coronavirus.
On March 14, Steph and his wife Ayesha Curry posted a video on Twitter explaining why they are planning on helping the students with their daily meals. They want to help the students who rely on meals provided by the Oakland Unified School District which is closed for the next several weeks.
“The world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of coronavirus, and … the Oakland Unified School District is closing their doors for the foreseeable future,” Steph said in the video. “So we want to intercede on behalf of the kids that rely on … their daily services, and try to help in any way we can.”
Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation
With the help of the “Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation,” they have made a contribution to the Alameda County Community Food Banks. They are planning to provide 1 million meals to about 18,000 students who rely on the school for their two meals a day.
“We want to make sure that we rally around everyone and ensure that these kids are not wondering where their next meal is coming from. And so we’re asking you to rally with us,” Ayesha said.
The 32-year-old NBA All-Star is inviting everyone to help others fighting the battle during this COVID-19 pandemic.
“Hopefully you can join the fight with us and have each other’s backs as we go through this uncertain time in our community.”
Oakland is closing schools bc of COVID-19. We support this decision but are concerned a/b the 18,000+ kids that rely on school for 2+ meals daily. @eatlearnplay is donating to @ACCFB to ensure every child has access to the food they need.
