Donated Breast Milk Saves Lives
The New York Milk Bank is the first comprehensive nonprofit milk bank based in New York State. We collect milk from carefully screened donors, pasteurize it and distribute it to infants in need.
Milk Banks Step In To Ease Formula Shortage

More women donating to NY Milk Bank during baby formula shortage
Every Drop Has A Story. What's Yours?
"Thank you NYMB for making it possible to help fellow NICU babies and for providing mothers with another option to feed their babies."
"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!"

We have over 25 milk depots licensed by The New York State Department of Health set up across the Tri-State area. If it isn’t convenient for you to drop your milk off at one of these collection sites, we can send a prepaid shipping box to you so you can send your milk directly to The New York Milk Bank.
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.
