Borderland Produce Rescue

All of the produce distributed by Borderlands has been rescued before it could be sent to area landfills. In 1994 we first realized that any produce not purchased by retailers, from produce distributors, was just dumped in the landfill as it is too costly for distributors to transport back to the growers. Witnessing this waste first hand helped form the beginnings of what is now Borderlands.

For over 23 years Borderlands has been educating the produce industry, that it does not have the right to dump fresh produce. Being based out of Nogales, Arizona, just miles from the port of Entry responsible for over 60% of produce consumed in North America, affords Borderlands with the opportunity to rescue millions of pounds of unsold produce every year.

 

Each day we gets calls from area distributors with produce available for donation. Borderlands' trucks make the daily trip of picking up and unloading thousands of pounds of fresh produce. Once at the Borderlands warehouse all produce is organized for distribution through one of many Borderlands programs.

Organizations are encouraged to stop by our Nogales, Arizona warehouse on Mondays to pick up fresh produce for their and their clients use. Tuesday through Friday, locals are encouraged to stop by the warehouse to shop for fresh produce. Every year, through our Produce on Wheels With-Out Waste (P.O.W.W.O.W) pop-up markets program we distribute over 6 million pounds of fresh produce to anyone (70lbs for $12) at these markets around Arizona.
