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 continued to grow this important program. With the help of many dedicated volunteers and donors, The Nappie Project distributes more than 600,000 free diapers every year. The demand for this resource continues, and the families we serve frequently tell us how grateful they are for its availability.
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, as costs continue to climb.
That’s why initiatives like The Nappie Project are so important. They help families in need access critical services, helping them live healthy and productive lives.
If you are a parent with little ones in need of diapers, visit one of our Fresh Food Share pantries. Diapers are not available at our mobile pantries.
