Demand for hygiene products

One in three low-income American families struggle to afford basic non-food household goods—including products related to personal care. In addition, hygiene products such as soap, toothpaste and deodorant are not covered under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). 

 

The result is a struggling population in our communities that face tough challenges. Parents worry that they cannot reinforce healthy hygiene habits with their children because of a lack of toiletry essentials. Common coping strategies such as brushing their teeth without toothpaste or washing without soap, can increase the likelihood of health and wellness issues.
