The South Bay Food Pantry is pleased to announce we won a countywide competition to launch a program to distribute free period products. We accepted our first delivery this past Tuesday. We will distribute pads and tampons on Sundays during our free diaper distribution.
The period products program is being administered by the Regional Diaper Bank. Several months ago, our contact at the Diaper Bank let us know the period product program would be coming down the pipe. We submitted our application, then waited for the results. We are so pleased to be able to offer these products to the many women in our area who live near or below the poverty line. Our goal is to provide products to women in South County. Our pantry is one of only five pantries chosen to launch this project.
Distributing diapers and period products is a very easy volunteer job. Two people can easily cover a shift. If you are interested in distributing diapers and period products during the week, please contact me. Flexible days and hours are available. Thank you for your interest and support!
