Providing small-scale transportation infrastructure for local recovery as well as long-haul transport capabilities
The Borderlands Food Bank annually recovers 35 to 40 million pounds of rejected but safe-to-eat produce from the border town of Nogales, Ariz., which could be replicated at produce terminals nationally. Borderlands redistributes this food throughout the U.S., with hunger-relief organizations paying two pennies per pound for long-haul transportation. This can equate to less than $1,000 per truckload for $70,000 worth of product.
