In need of infant formula?
Hunger Task Force provides infant formula through its emergency food pantry network. Our interactive map will show you which pantries have infant formula.
Hunger Task Force strongly encourages enrollment in the Women, Infant and Children’s Program (WIC). WIC provides help to purchase healthy foods, nutrition education and supportive services for pregnant and post-partum mothers and their infants and children up to age 5. The interactive map also displays where WIC Clinics are located.
Infant formula is in short supply right now. If you are a mother of an infant 12 months or younger and are nursing, please continue to do so. Breast milk is the first best choice for you. If you are the parent or caregiver of an infant 12 months or younger and need infant formula and can’t obtain your formula, please contact your pediatrician for information on other allowable formula choices.
- DO NOT water down formula. This places your child at risk of poor nutrition.
- DO NOT substitute cow’s milk, other milks or juices for infant formula without first consulting your pediatrician.
If you want to help families of infants experiencing a formula shortage:
- DO NOT purchase formula for donation. This will further disrupt availability.
- DO NOT hoard infant formula.
- If your infant no longer needs formula and you have it on hand, donate it to Hunger Task Force promptly at 5000 W. Electric Avenue in West Milwaukee.
- If your workplace has extra formula that could be donated to even out the supply chain, notify Hunger Task Force and we will arrange a pick up.
