“Tackling Tulsa’s Food Deserts”
Tulsa is so fortunate that after Hanson grew up, the boy band never left. The Hanson Brothers created a music festival, established a microbrewery and sunk roots in our city. They are also tackling community issues, like the lack of nutritional food in areas that lack full-service grocery stores. Next week , Taylor Hanson will speak to us about Tulsa’s food deserts and his initiative to help his fellow Tulsans.
