An initiative by Save on Foods is giving a great boost to the 100 Mile food bank.

Through its loop resource food waste diversion program, Save-On-Foods diverts surplus and potentially wasted food away from landfills and redirecting it to the best use.

“Everything out of Save-On now comes to the food bank,” said president of the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society, Bob Hicks. “We sort what’s good for human consumption we put out and what’s good for animal feed is used and then it’s compost.”

Hicks said one recent delivery was 940 pounds.

The 100 Mile food bank is open for perishables distribution weekdays from 9:30 to 11 am.
