The 100 Mile House Food Bank is very active in the community providing food and other items to individuals and families in danger of suffering hunger and malnutrition because of poverty. Currently there are approximately 1,900 residents in 100 Mile House and the food bank was established in 1973 and moved to its current location in 2009.
