Due to the generosity of our milk donors, NYMB is fortunate to provide donor milk not just to sick and premature infants but to healthy full-term infants. We provide donor milk to babies born through surrogacy, adoption, and babies in the foster care system. We also provide donor milk as a bridge until moms own milk is established.

Contribute

There are plenty of way to get involved without donating milk. Both financial and volunteer contributions go a long way towards helping our organization better serve families in need.

"As a carrier of BRCA mutation, I chose to have a preventative mastectomy to reduce my breast cancer risk and couldn't breastfeed my son. The New York Milk Bank made the impossible possible-my son has been fed breast milk for the first year of his life and I like to think he's drawn his incredible strength from all of the amazing women who donate to The New York Milk Bank. We can't thank you enough for everything you've all done for our family."

"Managing the Mother’s Milk Depot out of Cobleskill NY, I get to meet the amazingly generous moms who come to donate their milk. Every one of them has a beautiful story to share. We love being a piece to the puzzle for the NY Milk Bank!"
