Borderlands, which provides millions of pounds of produce throughout Arizona and beyond, may have to close its doors because of landfill fees.
"A nonprofit in southern Arizona that helps feed thousands of families across the country can't pay it's newest bill.
"Elected leaders in Santa Cruz County don't charge Borderlands Food Bank to dump its first 1.8 million pounds of waste each year, an estimated cost of $40,000, but that limit is already maxed out for the year.
"The head of Borderlands Food Bank said she is doing everything she can so the organization doesn’t have to return to the landfill, because they just don't have the money." --Craig Reck, Tucson News Now
