Healthy Essentials Pantry

We’re here to ensure that those in need have the help they need to obtain the personal care and household cleaning products they so desperately need.

Hygiene Poverty. What is it?

Hygiene poverty is being unable to afford the everyday items most of us take for granted. It’s having to choose between eating or staying clean because you can’t afford both.

It is very real and its effects are not exclusive of your income or employment status. The desperation and shame it brings can be devastating.

This is why our Healthy Essentials Pantry is here. The need is real, the need has gone unmet for too long, we are here to meet that need.
