If you are interested in donating milk there are many options. Visit these sites to find a location near you. NOTE: There are risks associated with informal milk sharing, especially in the case of premature and otherwise fragile infants. However, BfB wants every parent to be aware of all their feeding options and to be able to make an educated and informed decision about what’s next best to formula in the event a mother’s own milk is unavailable. By listing resources, we are not endorsing or recommending.
HMBANA -A HMBANA milk bank in your area will guide you through the process via phone or email. Once you’re all set, you can drop your precious donation at a HMBANA milk bank depot site or we can arrange for safe, overnight transportation at no cost to you. Visit their website or scroll down to see a list of locations.
