The mission of Minnesota Milk Bank for Babies it to improve infant health outcomes by ensuring that medically vulnerable babies – in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest – have access to safely pasteurized life-giving human donor milk when mother’s milk is unavailable or low supply.

Beltrami County is the first Milk Bank in the Headwaters Region. Public Health Director Amy Bowles said, “This is significant service, especially based on our location. The next nearest Milk Bank is Wadena, then Fargo. We are happy to be the newest partner with the Minnesota Milk Bank for Babies.”
