I noticed that the leaves of my tulips are curled and they are not growing a flower stem. Not sure why? Would they need food? What kind? Do they have bugs? OR maybe a disease? Any info would be very helpful. Thanks Gina

Based on your description it is possible they do have a disease. I would suggest you consult with your county extension to get a definite diagnosis. They may appreciate photos or a sample wrapped in a clear plastic bag. You should do this soon as it may mean you need to clean those tulips out of your garden before they infect others. You also need a definite diagnosis because it may affect your ability to replant the same location with tulips. I'm sorry about your tulips.
