Latest Episode: #14 Resilience in Action: Fighting Food Insecurity in Rural Oklahoma
May 6, 2021
Food insecurity in Oklahoma was higher than the national average before the pandemic. Since then, the need for food access has only increased, especially in rural areas and smaller cities in Oklahoma. This episode highlights a few inspiring stories from recipients of the 2020 TSET Food Systems Impact Grants. These projects make a little go a long way:
- RSVP of Enid, a multifaceted food and services resource center for seniors, expanded their operation to provide necessary assistance to local seniors as they age in place.
- In Laverne, Oklahoma, Collective Roots formed as a food security cooperative to connect local farmers and food producers with consumers in a rural area with limited food access.
- The Boys & Girls Clubs of Ottawa County tripled the number of meals they serve to meet the needs of children and families during the pandemic.
Learn about the resilience of rural Oklahoma in this month’s episode of the TSET Better Health Podcast.
