A lack of an adequate supply of diapers is a serious problem for parents with limited resources in our community. CCFI's Baby Pantry is stocked by in-kind donations from the community. This service offers families emergency baby supplies when their resources are extremely limited.
Families may come in twice a month, Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., to receive diapers and baby wipes free of charge. If you are in need of additional vital resources, please view our resource guide for more information.
Did You Know?
- Infants need up to 12 diapers per day; toddlers about 8 diapers per day.
- 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.
- Government assistance, such as WIC and SNAP (i.e. food stamps), do not cover diaper purchases (or other paper goods).
- In 2014, 49% of babies and children from low-income families in Oklahoma lived in single-parent homes. Single parents are more likely to have limited resources.
- Nearly 50% of children enrolled in Norman Public Schools are eligible for the federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program (2015) - a common indicator of childhood poverty.
- In low-income households, babies often spend the entire day or longer in a single diaper because the family cannot afford to buy an adequate supply of diapers (an adequate supply of diapers costs $70 - $80 per month).
