    Default Donating Milk

    I have an oversupply and I'm interested in donating my excess milk. I looked on HMBANA's website and their closest location to me is 3 hours away. I know I can ship the milk, but I was wondering if there are more milk banks. That website showed 10-12 milk banks, but it seems like there could be more. Are there different companies that I can donate through?

    There really should be more. Did you notice how many there are in Canada? lol. There are privet exchanges that go on but the milk banks are the only licensed places I have heard of. Check out Human Milk for Human Babies on facebook.

    Not every milk bank will take milk from moms in every state. The one that takes milk from moms in my state is actually not the closest one. It's all the way across the country You have to contact each milk bank and ask.

    I have donated privately. This is a great resource for safe milk sharing.

    Apparently, the Austin milk bank needs milk urgently and will take milk from moms anywhere right now who meet their requirements.
