Woman to Woman
New York City is one of the world’s wealthiest cities, but many of its working families cannot afford basic necessities. Whether struggling against the rising cost of living or the devastating impacts from COVID-19, families are often forced to make impossible compromises between paying for basic needs, like food and rent, and purchasing other essentials like diapers, menstrual care products, and baby formula. Many of these items are ones traditionally accessed by girls, women, and mothers.
Food Bank’s “Woman to Woman” campaign seeks to tackle these disparities by raising awareness about period poverty in New York City and addressing the unique needs of low-income families.
