Steph Curry and his wife Ayesha Curry recently launched their new foundation in the Bay Area called Eat. Learn. Play., and it’s intended to help end childhood hunger in lower-income communities.
They also want to encourage healthy lifestyles and make sure children in underserved areas have access to quality education.
The restaurateur and NBA star based Eat. Learn. Play. on the idea that proper nutrition, along with a solid education and physical activity, will help children thrive.
“Children are our future and we are deeply dedicated to empowering them and opening doors for their futures,” said the couple, who’ve been married for eight years. They also have two daughters and a son, Riley, Ryan and Canon.
“This organization is all about instilling ongoing tangible change for underprivileged children growing up in the Bay Area and beyond,” the Currys added. “As parents, we see a multitude of unique opportunities our kids have access to, and our hope is that Eat. Learn. Play. and the critical fundamental development tools it provides, will positively impact children in our community to live out their dreams.”
On Thursday, July 18, Eat. Learn. Play. had had their official launch by inviting 900 kids from Oakland Parks Recreation and Youth Development’s Town Camps to join in on a huge event filled with various activities that centered around the eat, play and learn concept.
Some who’ve partnered with the Currys for the organization include his team the Golden State Warriors, Under Armour, which Steph Curry endorses, Kaiser Permanente, Chase, Google, Revolution Foods and GoDaddy.
People thanked the couple for all they do in the Bay area on their Instagram pages. Because in March of this year, they announced a STEM scholarship program for girls through their Steph and Ayesha Curry Foundation.
“Amazing couple,” someone wrote on the hoop star’s Instagram when he shared news of the Eat. Learn, Play. event.
“Amazing when people use their platforms and resources to create impact,” one person wrote on Ayesha Curry’s page.
