If you're a parent, you've hopefully never had to choose between skipping a meal or buying diapers for your baby.

Unfortunately, this is the reality for more than a quarter of U.S. families, according to the National Diaper Bank Network.

It's a crisis the Gem State is dealing with as well, and one that Idaho's Diaper Bank is tackling as they work to fill essential gaps in our community's basic needs.

Traci Lofthus, Executive Director of the Idaho Diaper Bank, joined Idaho Matters to talk more about this issue.
