Food Drive & Period Product Drive Toolkits

Period Equity Kit Box

Period poverty is the lack of access to sanitary products, toilets, menstrual hygiene education, hand washing facilities, and/or waste management (American Medical Women’s Association, October 2019). Lack of access to these period supplies is closely tied to poverty and under-resourced communities. It often results in stress and shame, as well as time lost from school and work. In fact, it is estimated that 1 in 4 teens has missed class for lack of a maxi-pad or tampon.

College Meal Kit

College Meal Food Box

With tight budgets and busy schedules, college students are particularly vulnerable to hunger, which can hinder their abilities to excel in the classroom and put them at greater risk of dropping out. CFBNJ distributes food to a dozen college campus pantries throughout the state and works with government to help enact long-term solutions to end college hunger in New Jersey.
