Mobile Grocery Store Offers Healthy Food To Tulsans Without Stores Nearby
TULSA, Oklahoma - So, you've heard of food trucks and ice cream trucks, but what about a farmers market truck? Well, in Tulsa that's becoming a reality.
The Real Good Food Truck is a mobile grocery store that will drive through areas without a neighborhood grocery store, which is something around 84,000 Tulsans deal with.
The truck will be stocked with fresh local produce, meats and other healthy foods.
Customers can use cash, credit or food stamps to purchase goods. Organizers are hoping their efforts encourage residents to eat better.
"The idea is to get it out there and get people interested and having access to healthy foods, fresh foods," said director Scott Smith.
The food truck was launched by the Healthy Corner Store initiative.
