Many families struggle to pay for food, rent, utilities, and transportation. As a result, 1 in 3 families cannot afford diapers, which are not covered by the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). According to National Diaper Bank Network, one baby goes through six to ten disposable diapers every day, which can cost $70-80 a month, per baby.
Catholic Charities has been blessed as 1 of 10 local Agencies who benefit from a $1 million diaper grant through the Central California Food Bank. Through this partnership, we’re able to provide diapers to families with children between the ages of 0-5 years of age every 30 days. Clients need to provide proof of identification for themselves, a form of identification for children, proof of address and income.
