Education Corner: Produce Rescue: Nogales Group Feeds Vulnerable Communities as it Fights Food Waste

Read the Cronkite News’ article and view the video reporting how Borderlands Produce Rescue partners with nonprofit organizations like Arizona State University Tempe Campus, one of three campuses in the Metropolitan Phoenix area hosting the Produce On Wheels With – Out Waste program in food desert areas so vulnerable communities can eat fresh fruits and vegetables rescued to help combat food waste so fresh produce does not end up in the landfill.  The P.O.W.W.O.W. program is a redistribution program with supporters who contribute $12 (no income or residential qualifications) and shop for up to 70 lbs. of produce sharing with friends and family members.
