Veggies R' Us - Produce Distribution in Nogales, Arizona

Borderlands' Veggies R' Us program provides individuals and organizations direct access to rescued produce at our Nogales, Arizona warehouse. As with all of our programs, anyone can take advantage regardless of where they reside (Arizona or Mexico.)

During our 2015-2016 season, through our Veggies R'Us program, we were able to distribute over 11 million pounds of fresh, rescued produce.

Direct Client Services

Launched in 1995, our Direct Client Distribution allows for everyday individuals to stop by the Borderlands Nogales warehouse to access fresh produce. Every Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, the Borderlands Nogales warehouse is open to serve the local community. Supporters are provided with an entire shopping cart full of produce, all for just a contribution of $5 for a minimum of 100 lbs.

Today, the 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.

There is no formal requirement to sign up for this service. Clients are registered on their first visit to Borderlands and receive a bar-coded ID card to use on subsequent visits.
