Infant Crisis Services provides life-sustaining formula, food, and diapers to babies and toddlers in times of crisis…. Because no baby should go hungry. 1 in 4 Oklahoma children are at risk of going to bed hungry each night. The need for diapers, formula, and food is always there. From time to time, parents experience circumstances that make it difficult to provide for their children. Infant Crisis Services is the only food and diaper pantry in central Oklahoma dedicated to babies and toddlers. Established in 1984 with the goal of assisting families in crisis, they have served nearly 300,000 children.
