Stephen and Ayesha Curry have been big supporters of No Kid Hungry since 2015, but they’re taking their efforts to end childhood hunger to a new level.
The couple’s Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation is partnering with No Kid Hungry to ensure kids in and beyond Oakland, Calif., get the three meals a day they need to reach their full potential. To kick off the partnership, the foundation will generously match all donations made to No Kid Hungry in December, up to 2.5 million meals – providing countless opportunities to children in need.
But that’s not all.
Stephen and Ayesha are stepping into a brand-new role as our very first National Spokesfamily, shining a light on the millions of kids in America who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
“Being a mom, it’s extremely hard to accept that there are kids who aren’t getting enough to eat,” said Ayesha – entrepreneur, NYT best-selling author, and world-renowned chef and restaurateur. “When I began working with No Kid Hungry, I knew right away they were making a difference in kids’ lives. It was only natural they’d be our perfect partners to help make sure kids in Oakland, and throughout the country, get the nutritious food they need.”
The Currys will work with lawmakers across California; make programmatic investments in No Kid Hungry’s work in Oakland; and raise national awareness and funds to end childhood hunger in America for good.
“I know firsthand the fuel a healthy meal provides to perform at your best, and that’s just as true for kids in classrooms as it is for me on the court,” said Stephen, a three-time NBA Champion and two-time MVP. “Helping kids succeed is why we started Eat. Learn. Play. and why I’m excited we’re partnering with No Kid Hungry to take our work to the next level. Even one hungry kid is one too many.”
Join Stephen and Ayesha by taking your support for hungry kids to a new level: help us meet our December 31 goal of raising enough funds to provide 10 million meals, and 10 million possibilities, for kids in need.
