Tulsa’s Cox Business Convention Center integrates farm-to-table initiatives into all food & beverage operations. Local produce is purchased whenever possible to ensure the freshest of ingredients and provide support to the local economy. By supporting regional farmers and reducing “food miles” we can decrease transportation emissions. Besides being known for their culinary skills (“Cooking for a Crowd”), the team is constantly searching for new sustainable initiatives, reducing waste, and giving back to the community. In one year (2017-2018), the team donated over 19,000 pounds of food to the local John 3:16 Mission.
