Find Diapers

Looking for diapers?

The Diaper Bank of Minnesota does not provide diapers directly to families. If you are a parent or caregiver looking for diapers, here are a few resources.

Diaper Bank of Minnesota partner organizations

We provide diapers to a network of agencies serving the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Some distribute diapers to the general public, others only provide them to families that they are already serving in other ways. You can review the list of our partners and see their eligibility information (here – add link).

Mt. Olivet Diaper Depot

The Mount Olivet Diaper Depot offers Minneapolis residents the opportunity to purchase diapers at a discounted rate each month. https://www.mountolivechurch.org/community/neighborhood-ministries/supporting-neighborhood-youth-and-children/

Food shelves

Food shelves may have diapers available. Minnesotans with low incomes can access free food – including some items that meet specific cultural diets – and other household items at food shelves in their communities. The Department of Human Services supports Minnesota’s seven regional food banks and more than 300 food shelves, all of which serve people regardless of their immigration status. Accessing food shelves does not count as public assistance under the federal Public Charge Rule. Several resources are available to help individuals and families.

Search for your the local food shelf by zip code. Your local food shelf may offer fresh produce, meat, hygiene items, cleaning supplies, diapers and more. Contact provider for details/appointments https://www.hungersolutions.org/find-help/
