In 2015, The Hillsborough County Breastfeeding Task Force's past- president Robin Booth Watson, collaborated with Shannon Green, owner of The Green Mommy Store, to raise funds for a Tampa Breastmilk Depot for The Mother’s Milk Bank of Florida.
The Depot officially opened in 2016 at the Green Mommy Store at 8802 Rocky Creek Dr., Tampa, Fl 33615.
The Tampa depot’s freezer can hold about 500 oz of breastmilk at the Green Mommy Store which is then shipped on dry ice to The Mother’s Milk Bank of Florida in Orlando. The Milk Bank screens donors and their milk. Any milk that does not pass the standards for donor milk is donated to research.
If you would like to become a donor, please contact The Mother’s Milk Bank of Florida for telephone screening.
