Supermercado Morelos to Participate in Food Program

Tulsa, OK.- Locally and family-owned Hispanic supermarket chain, Supermercados Morelos, is delighted to announce its partnership with INCOG Area Agency on Aging (IAAA), to increase accessibility to food sources for more Tulsa residents. The Indian Nations Council of Government Area Agency on Aging (IAAA) was selected by NADTC last February for an implementation round. This Phase II for the Tulsa CAN Plan consists in the launch of one of the recommendations in the plan: a healthy food access travel service using rideshare companies, which includes a component of paratransit travel trainings and field trips to stores available in north Tulsa, with proximity to the target area.

"Supermercados Morelos is a family business, and we value our clients and their families, everyone deserves to live with dignity, and this program gives us the opportunity to put something as basic as food, within the reach of hundreds of families." Francisco Ibarra, owner

Thanks to a federal grant awarded by the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC), INCOG is looking at innovative ways to improve access to healthy food sources, build partnerships and strong community involvement, and find solutions that can be replicated in other food deserts within the Tulsa region. “With the field trips and the implementation of a healthy food access travel service using rideshare, our goal is to encourage the residents of food desert areas to visit grocery stores close to home, foster economic growth locally by supporting neighborhood stores, and reduce long commuting times.” Paulina Baeza, Transportation Planner, INCOG.
