Donate Extra Breastmilk at
St. Luke’s is proud to partner with the Minnesota Milk Bank for Babies (MMBB) to help coordinate breastmilk donations. This ensures that medically vulnerable babies in our area have access to safely pasteurized donor milk when their mothers’ supply is low or not available. All donations of breastmilk must be:
- From non-smoking households
- Kept in clean, food-grade containers
- Stored for no more than one year
- At least 100 ounces
To get started, MMBB will guide you through a screening process. This involves a phone interview, an application and blood testing (coordinated and paid for by MMBB). After successfully completing these steps, MMBB will provide you with a donor number and you will be ready to help babies across Minnesota. Donations can be made during normal business hours at St. Luke’s Pediatric Associates, St. Luke’s Building A (1015 E. 1st Street).
If you have questions or want to get started, call St. Luke’s AfterCare at 218.249.5983 or email Info@mnmilkbank.org.
