Fair foods: huge bag of produce for $2, no income or ID requirement

I can't even tell you how much I am loving the Fair Foods truck. They come to my neighborhood every week and offer whatever surplus produce they have for $2 per bag. The bags are actually around 15-20 pounds most weeks. One week they had cases of blemished tomatoes for $2 as well. Last week we got summer squash, onions, garlic, lemons, and tomatoes. This is some of the leftovers of the haul:

For a quick dinner, I tossed onions and squash on a baking sheet and sprinkled it with oil, soy sauce, lemon juice from a couple of the lemons, and fajita spices. 

I roasted it in the oven until it looked amazing, then served with rice and sour cream on WIC tortillas. Amazing, fresh, healthy dinner (plus lunch the next day and still plenty of raw veggies left) for $2 plus a few cents' worth of items from my pantry. 

A great reminder
