Cyrenians’ Access to Free Sanitary Products scheme will provide free sanitary products for all their FareShare Community Food Member organisations as well as any other frontline organisation with service users who could benefit from them.
FareShare is the one of the UK’s largest charities tackling hunger and food waste and Cyrenians runs the Edinburgh FareShare redistribution centre—delivering surplus food to frontline charities and community groups. They have recently received funding to enable the redistribution of sanitary products to vulnerable women and girls and low-income households across the country.
By using the network of FareShare Community Food Member organisations as well as other local organisations who work with vulnerable individuals, they are working to reduce the prevalent issue of period poverty and the anxiety experienced by those who struggle to find the money to buy these essential items.
