A Tulsa family says access to locally grown fruits and vegetables is improving their health. Participants in the Fresh RX Food Program tell News On 6's Sawyer Buccy in just 19 weeks they are already seeing lowered A1C levels. Welcome to Debra Cooper's Kitchen.
In a few months, 50 people with type 2 diabetes and high A1C levels will be given a box of fresh groceries every two weeks for a year through a program called Tulsa FreshRX. Every two weeks a box of free, fresh, local, and nutritious food and a tablet full of cooking classes and food education that don’t require WiFi to access.
Local farmers are working around the clock to do something good for families participating in the Fresh RX Program. "Everything is just growing and flourishing," said Tulsa Farmer Earl Stripling. This North Tulsa backyard is Earl Stripling's sanctuary.
