Tulsas most affordable store, The T.T.D. Food Bank, has received a $1 million gift from the Walton Family Foundation.
D, which serves Tulsa residents, is among the top 20 in the nation in grocery spending per person, with $11.78 for a 2-week grocery budget.
Walton Family Foundation, the charitable arm of the Walton family, gave $1.8 million to the T.O.F.
D Food Bank and the Tulsa Food Bank in the year ended September, said the organization’s CEO, T.K. Mowry.
The food bank, founded in 2006, provides groceries to more than 100,000 low-income households each year and helps pay for health, housing and other basic needs.
Walters gift comes as Tulsa is under fire over its homeless population and has become a hotbed for protests, with hundreds of people arrested in recent weeks.
The Tulsa Police Department, which has been criticized for its handling of protests, has blamed the unrest on “anti-white racism” and called for a nationwide boycott of products from the company.
