Allow Anyone To Access Period Products Through Food Banks

Allow Anyone To Access Period Products Through Food Banks

Implement a strategy that states that all food banks have to provide period products to those who need them upon request.

Why is this important?

There are many people who are above the threshold to recieve food bank vouchers yet still experience period poverty. This can happen for many reasons. Covid19 highlighted this issue as domestic abuse is more prevalent during lockdown than ever. Financial abuse occurs within the home & often means those who are vulnerable and a victim of such go without period products.
