Veggies R'Us - Fresh, Nutritious & Local distribution in Nogales, Arizona
Launched in 1995, our Direct Client Distribution allows for anyone to stop by the Borderlands Produce Rescue warehouse in Nogales, Arizona, to access fresh produce. Supporters can make a small donation to support our work and take home nearly 250lbs of rescued produce. This program is especially vital in our community where we lack access to public transportation; we encourage our supporters to share their produce with friends, family and neighbors.
Each year, our Direct Client Service Program enables nearly 4,000 households from Mexico and 5,000 from Santa Cruz County, Arizona, to obtain an abundant supply of nutritious produce to help balance their diet and enrich it with vitamins and minerals necessary to maintain the healthy functioning of their minds and bodies. Children in particular must have this nourishment in order to grow and flourish.
As with all of our programs, there are no income or residency requirements to participate in our Veggies'R Us program. If you are an agency, or a non-profit, we do require you to register your agency/non-profit with us.
