The Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin (MMBA) will celebrate World Breastfeeding Week (August 1 to 7) beginning with a concert honoring the milk bank’s donors at Central Market (N. Lamar location) on the evening of August 1.
Events held throughout the week—and through the month of August—celebrate healthy lactating moms choosing to feed their own infants and donating surplus milk to the non-profit milk bank.
“MMBA is indebted to the 400 milk donors already approved this year,” said Kim Updegrove, executive director of MMBA. “We need at least 400 more to donate milk in order to have an adequate supply of donor milk for the babies in the 128 hospitals served.” The MMBA needs milk donors, volunteers and supporters.
