Eat. Learn. Play. is committed to ensuring every Oakland resident has the food they need for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. Working alongside our key partners - including Oakland Unified School District, Alameda County Community Food Bank, and World Central Kitchen - the Foundation will help provide nearly 300,000 meals a week to Oakland residents over the next several months.
ALAMEDA COUNTY COMMUNITY FOOD BANK
Food banks around the country are a critical lifeline for communities during the pandemic. In Oakland and throughout Alameda County, we're committed to providing funding and logistical support to the Alameda County Community Food Bank for the delivery of 250,000 meals every week to kids and families throughout this crisis.
WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN
World Central Kitchen is a global non-profit founded by celebrity Chef José Andrés to provide meals to communities during disasters. We're working alongside World Central Kitchen in Oakland to engage 20-25 local restaurants in the preparation and distribution of up to 5,000 meals each day to Oakland's most vulnerable residents, including low-income children and families, the homeless, immigrants, youth in the foster system, the elderly, and health care and other essential workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.
OAKLAND UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
OUSD will ensure that students who depend on school for their daily meals continue to receive them during school closures. To date, OUSD has delivered over 500,000 student meals, and in partnership with Eat. Learn. Play. and the Alameda County Community Food Bank, an additional 25,000 bags of groceries to their families. The Foundation continues to convene public and private partnerships to support OUSD in delivering three daily meals and grocery bags to students and families in Oakland.
Donate now to help ensure all Oakland and Alameda County residents have food during this crisis. 100% of donations go to community programs and grants as Stephen and Ayesha Curry provide support for the Foundation's operating expenses.
