Mission Statement

The mission of Borderlands Produce Rescue is to rescue produce and in turn improve the quality of peoples’ lives, by addressing their most basic of needs - accessibility to nutritious fresh produce and living in a healthy environment. For 24 years BPR has rescued approximately 32 million pounds of produce annually that ordinarily would go to a landfill and distributes it to more than 92,000 Ariz ona households, plus residents in 24 other states and 75 cities. BPR partners with 59 nonprofits in Ariz ona through the Produce On Wheels With - Out Waste program (P.O.W.W.O.W.) to ensure access to fresh produce for Ariz ona’s most vulnerable residents: the homeless, the elderly, disabled, Veterans, women and children.


BPR has five major programs that it utilizes to distribute its rescued produce. Rescued produce is defined as unsold produce that is donated from a local distribution warehouse, directly to BPR. The purpose is distributing to families locally, Statewide, Internationally and some U.S. States. The local and International Program is Veggies R Us open daily, the Arizona Program is Produce on Wheels With- Out Waste, the Out of State Program is Produce Travels and the Perished Product Program is PAC - Potpourri for Animals and Compost.
