Tampon Tuesday

Thank you for two incredible Tampon Tuesdays!

Two great restaurants partnered with United Way Simcoe Muskoka, our local labour unions and other charity partners to bring Tampon Tuesday to Barrie and Orillia!

In Barrie, Simmering Kettle gave free appetizers in exchange for a donation of a box of tampons or pads. By the end of the night, we collected over 300 donations that will help local women and girls.

In Orillia, Kelseys Roadhouse also offered free appetizers for donations. The result? Over six drum barrels filled with tampons and pads!

About Tampon Tuesday

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.
