Donor Milk in Your Neighborhood

Mid-Atlantic Mothers’ Milk Bank is working on ways to increase access to our milk bank throughout the region.

Depots are a handy place for pre-screened donor moms to drop off their milk.

Dispensaries, hosted by our community partners, can dispense limited amounts of donor milk for short-term use to local families.

Who can use the Donor Milk in Your Neighborhood program?

There are two ways to use this program: depots and dispensaries.

Depots are designed to be a handy drop-off for approved, pre-screened breast milk donors. Learn more about becoming a milk donor.

Dispensaries support families who have an immediate need for a limited amount of frozen, pasteurized donor milk to carry them through to the next step of their feeding plan.

Below, please find all our locations, including their designation as depot, dispensary or both. Pre-screened donors can drop off milk at depot locations. Donor milk can be purchased, per the qualifications, at dispensary locations. Want to know more? Contact us at info@midatlanticmilkbank.com.

A note about lactation support

When donor milk is being used as a supplement, it is important to pair it with lactation support so parents are able to meet their feeding goals.  If you do not have lactation support in place, let us know and we will assist you in finding help in your area.
