Tulsa World, August 8, 2010. The Tulsa Healthy Corner Store Initiative is working to bring healthier food retail to parts of the city that are underserved. Stores can receive help from House Bill 3015, which makes healthy corner stores eligible for loans of up to $350,000. One challenge for small food stores is finding distributors that will sell them smaller quantities of fresh produce at wholesale rates. Members of the Initiative are working to create a fresh produce buying co-op so that member stores can benefit from wholesale prices.
