Bold North Milk Bank Grand Opening

Update! Bold North Milk Bank is excited to announce our July fundraising made so much possible! Your donations helped to cover required milk bank materials like HMBANA guides and secure electronic communication.  The foundational elements seem small, but have a huge impact. A strong foundation is what builds a great milk bank. 

Welcome aboard to our Medical Director Dr. Emily Pike! 

In August, we plan to secure our location. We need $90,000 to get our doors open for September. Help us reach this goal!

Bold North Milk Bank's mission is to improve health and first-food equity through prenatal education, postpartum support, and pasteurized human donor milk for vulnerable infants.

Join us in raising funds to open a human donor milk bank serving Minnesota and the Dakotas. Our focus on equity and our reach into rural MN and the Dakotas ensure that babies in rural  and under-served areas get the very best start.

Every penny counts just like every drop of breastmilk counts. Bold North Milk Bank is a Minnesota registered non-profit and pending 501c3.
