It may surprise you, but one in four low-income women report a lack of access to period supplies (~100,000 women and girls in Northeast Florida). This health and safety issue is linked to using substitute products (toilet tissue, socks, rags, etc.), stretching product usage, and missing work, school or other similar events. Furthermore, menstrual products are not included in safety net programs such as SNAP (food stamps) and WIC (Women, Infants and Children Nutritional Program).
In collaboration with partnering organizations (Feeding Northeast Florida, The Women’s Giving Alliance and The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida), Renewing Dignity is dedicated to providing essential period products to women and girls who can’t afford them. “Period Poverty” is a health and safety, affordability, life-limiting, and dignity issue.
