Since the milk bank’s official opening in 1999, we’ve grown beyond Austin’s city limits to become the world’s largest non-profit milk bank, feeding babies with over 7 million ounces of donor milk. Thanks to the dedication of their ever-growing numbers of milk donors, volunteers, supporters, and staff, this year the milk bank celebrates its 21st anniversary of providing milk to preterm and medically fragile babies in Texas and across the U.S.
The goal of this social media toolkit is to share information about the milk bank and encourage you to help us to spread the word about our mission. We need 2,000 lactating women to donate in 2021 to meet the anticipated demand for donor breast milk. As you know, every drop counts!

About Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin
- Did you know that every year, 60,000 babies are born in the United States weighing 3.5 pounds or less? Less than half of those babies’ mothers are able to provide them with #breastmilk. Through lifesaving donor milk, these medically-fragile babies receive the benefits of breast milk that help them grow and thrive.
- Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin is a non-profit organization whose mission is to save babies’ lives by providing prescribed donor human milk. Volunteer moms donate their extra breast milk and the milk bank pasteurizes it in their lab in order to eliminate any bacteria and viruses. Finally, the lifesaving donor milk is distributed to babies in Texas and all over the United States. Ready to help support their mission? Follow @milkbank today!
