Steph and Ayesha Curry pledged to fund one million meals for students affected by school closures due to Coronavirus.


While Steph and Ayesha Curry support Oakland's decision to close schools because of the threat of COVID-19, they raised concern over the thousands of children who rely on school for their meals. That is why the couple pledged to fund for one million meals for every child to have access to food.

7 NBA stars have tested positive for Coronavirus.

The NBA season is suspended, and while many of the players are in self-quarantine with the rest of their families, that didn't stop Steph and Ayesha Curry from thinking of other people, particularly the school children who were to be affected.

"We want to intercede on behalf of the kids that rely on the daily services and try to help anyway we can."



The National School Lunch Program provides low-cost or even free lunch to 29.7 million children. However, since the coronavirus pandemic shut down schools, underprivileged families are trying to find ways to feed their children.


Although school sites will be providing grab and go meals for students on some days, schools will remain closed. Speaking of the crisis that it'll bring, Ayesha said:

"At least 18,000 kids rely on at least two meals a day from the school system, so 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."



Aside from pledging to fund one million meals, Steph and the rest of the Warriors also pledged $1 million to a disaster relief fund that provides Chase Center employees with salaries as they won't be working games due to the suspension of the NBA season.

7 NBA stars have tested positive for Coronavirus, including all-stars Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell, and Kevin Durant. Luckily for Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors physician Dr. Robert Nied confirmed that while he's been feeling under the weather, he only has the seasonal flu and has no symptoms of Corona Virus.
