Steph And Ayesha Curry's Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation Assists The Bay Area During Crisis

With him being a three-time NBA champion, two-time MVP and six-time All-Star and her the maven behind hot spot International Smoke, Stephen and Ayesha Curry top the list for most beloved Bay Area power couples. But what makes the community really gush over the Currys is their philanthropic work for the Bay Area. During the pandemic, their Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation distributed tens of thousands of meals to Oakland kids who weren’t in school. “This moment has clearly demonstrated the need for all of us to have a holistic approach to food security,” Steph says. “It starts with sourcing from farmers who have been historically disconnected by traditional supply chains, to delivering the food in a manner that meets families where they are.” The complex initiative involved pooling together mostly minority farmers, out-of-service restaurants and parents in need of employment, among many others. Ayesha says, “Honestly, I think it is really inspirational to see what happens if a group of people put their heads together in order to fix a problem.”
