In March of 2009, staff at CTV London noticed that, during a tour of the London Food Bank, the non-food cupboard had no feminine hygiene products. This, despite the fact that menstrual hygiene products are one of the most requested items at food banks.
What followed was a movement that has since raised over 330,000 donations of feminine hygiene products across Canada.
United Way Simcoe Muskoka is happy to partner with local restaurants to bring Tampon Tuesday back to Simcoe Muskoka. Join us at one of the following events, in either Barrie or Orillia, and bring a donation of a box of pads or tampons to enjoy some delicious, free appetizers!
