The Curry family is doing great things on and off the court.
Stephen and Ayesha Curry took to twitter to make an exciting announcement regarding kids in Oakland affected by school closures.
Many children rely on their school’s free or reduced-price meal plans but as school’s around the country are closing due to the Coronavirus, plans are being put in place so that students can still receive their meals.
The Curry’s have teamed up with the Alameda County Food Bank to provide one million meals to students who need them. Along with their contribution, they are also encouraging the public to make a donation as well.
About 18,000 kids rely on their school’s free or reduced-price meal plans.
Oakland Unified says 12 of its sites will provide grab-and-go meals while the campuses are closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
