For those unaware, local nonprofit Fresh Approach is continuing to visit Richmond and San Pablo on Wednesdays to provide affordable, healthy produce to local community members.

The truck stops at the Richmond Public Library from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. After that, it moves to the San Pablo Senior Center (1943 Church Lane) from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The last stop of the day is the Richmond Parkway YMCA (4300 Lakeside Drive) from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m.

Along with affordably priced produce, Fresh Approach offers a 50 percent discount to customers who participate in income-based benefit programs such as CalFresh (SNAP), WIC, SSI/SSDI and Medi-Cal and unemployment.

The program is sponsored in part by Kaiser Permanente.
