'Grocery Store on Wheels' to Bring Fresh Produce to Tulsa's Underserved Areas

Posted: Updated:

Tulsa's first 'grocery store on wheels' was unveiled to the public this week.

The "Real Good Food Truck" is starting to roll through the streets of T-Town after being shown off at a community event Thursday evening.

According to officials, nearly 84,000 Tulsans live in a "food desert," where there's little or no access to a real grocery store, which is what the R&G

Family Grocers hope to change.

The mobile grocery store will be stocked full of fresh, local produce, dairy, lean meats, grains and dry goods -- and plans to make twice-weekly stops

in six north Tulsa locations and six west Tulsa locations, plus some senior living facilities.

R&G Family Grocers is funded through grants from the Helmerich Foundation and George Kaiser Family Foundation.
