Community members stocked up with boxes of fresh produce on Saturday during giveaways at Rio Rico High School and the Oasis Cinema in Nogales. The organizers, who included local government agencies, nonprofits and produce importers, said they were ready to give out approximately 1,000 boxes at each site.
The Nogales area, a hub for imported fruits and vegetables from Mexico, has been awash in excess produce of late as demand from restaurants, hotels and schools has dried up due to coronavirus-related closures and restrictions.
