Essential Services

While the large majority of what we distribute is food, there are often additional essential items available including cleaning supplies, pet food, household essentials, diapers, and period products. Whether you have non-food items to donate or are in need of free household items, read below. 

DIAPERS

The Nappie Project

In 2015, Food Bank volunteer Jan Touslee noticed that many of the families that needed food also needed other necessities, like diapers. That realization started Jan on a journey to provide diapers to families in need in Fort Collins, Loveland, and throughout the community. The Nappie Project was born.

Through 2021, The Nappie Project had distributed more than 1 million diapers, and since the Food Bank took over The Nappie Project’s operations in July of 2021, we’ve distributed more than 250,000 diapers to our clients. That number has grown significantly annually since.

Diaper need is defined as the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry, and healthy. The National Diaper Bank Network estimates that 1 in 3 families experience diaper need. And it isn’t getting any easier. The Nappie Project reports that during the pandemic it distributed 40 percent more diapers, while the nation’s largest diaper producers recently announced price increases.
