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 25 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 Arizona households, plus residents in 25 other states and 75 cities. BPR partners with over 60 nonprofits in Arizona through the Produce On Wheels With - Out Waste program (P.O.W.W.O.W.) to ensure access to fresh produce for Arizona’s most vulnerable residents: the homeless, the elderly, disabled, Veterans, women and children.

Description

Borderlands Produce Rescue is a non-profit organization located in Nogales, Arizona that rescues millions of pounds of produce grown in Mexico that is unable to make it to its intended destination and would otherwise be landfilled. Their mission is to divert produce that would otherwise be wasted, distributing it at a very low cost to communities throughout Arizona, in order to provide additional produce to those who need it while simultaneously reducing a large amount of food waste. Borderlands diverts and distributes over 32 million pounds of fresh produce annually.
