We all know the feeling of casual hunger, when you’d like something to eat and it’s an hour until your next meal. Food banks are there for those difficult times when there’s no food at home and it’s days or weeks until your next cheque.
The London Food Bank has been helping people since 1986. Last year they helped more than 2,500 families per month. Of the $2 million worth of food they distributed, more than a third (41%) went to feed children and youth.
53% of the London Food Bank’s clients are women who are leading households. Therefore an estimated 3900 females require this product on a monthly basis. Other agencies that utilize the London Food Bank also have access to the feminine hygiene products that are donated through TAMPON TUESDAY.
**All Feminine Hygiene products donated to TAMPON TUESDAY are delivered to the London Food Bank.
