The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges happily accepts open packages of unused diapers for our Diaper Program, which is currently distributing diapers to as many as 130 babies each month. Clean diapers are a basic need of all babies and toddlers. Yet, one in three U.S. parents do not have enough diapers to keep their baby clean, dry and healthy. Parents working hard to make ends meet also pay more for their children's basic necessities - including often paying twice as much for diapers as wealthier parents. Low-income parents with infants and toddlers spend 14 percent of their income on diapers alone - leaving less room to cover rent, food, or heat. Innovative approaches like IFPO's Diaper program, a participant in the National Diaper Bank Network, can help close the Diaper Gap. Read more here (White House blog).
