In Wales ( I don't know if this is a thing elsewhere) they are setting up co op food schemes where you order and collect fresh fruit & veg week by week. It's brilliant - for £5 this week I got a bag of potatoes, onions, a leek, a cauliflower, carrots, some baby sweet corn, a huge tub of grapes, apples, oranges, a kiwi, plums and bananas!

Just wanted to recommend it really. Mine is run from a church and you have to collect on a Fri between 10-11 so not ideal for those who work full time. Not sure how you find out whether your area has one, I saw a poster for mine but it's a Welsh Government scheme so there must be info somewhere. They also do stir fry and salad bags.

I do this every week at our village community cafe, ours also sells eggs and i can pay for the fruit and veg using my healthy start tokens. The schools do then as well and i think its great.
