(TULSA, Okla.) The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Foundation will sponsor a project to pay various local restaurants to cook fresh meals five days a week for the next two weeks. The meals will be picked up by TCSO Deputies and taken “Food on the Move” for distribution to area residents in need across Tulsa County. To donate to the Sheriff’s Foundation log into: For updated info on how to receive a meal or volunteer to help: About Food On The Move The Food On The Move, mobile food initiative, is a collaboration of food and health experts and community partners to mobilize good quality food into food deserts (areas without access to fresh produce), helping combat hunger and food insecurity in Tulsa and Oklahoma. Their long term goal is to effect long term permanent change attracting investment, partnership and the return of a community grocery stores and sustainable local food systems. In response to the COVID 19 outbreak which is further limiting access to resources with rising unemployment and economic depression, Food On The Move is mobilizing to serve more individuals living within food deserts of North Tulsa through Drive Through and Drop Off program, which helps support local restaurants while adhering to social distancing guidelines. How does it work? Low touch at a stationary location: Groceries, fresh produce for a week, and a prepared meal for five are assembled at a central site. Delivery facility is set up at a stationary location. Guests drive through and open their trunk. FOTM Volunteer (wearing a mask and gloves) loads food into the vehicle. No-touch deliveries at multiple locations: Food Truck drives to local neighborhoods. FOTM Volunteer (wearing a mask and gloves) drops off grocery box and meal to each doorstep. After delivery residents pick up delivered food (FOTM and Residents are never in close proximity). Learn more here:
