The Hillsborough County Breastfeeding Task Force is now the TAMPA BAY BREASTFEEDING TASK FORCE.
This change was made to reflect our growing network of breastfeeding advocates working to promote the normalization of breastfeeding in Tampa Bay. Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough all have representation on the task force.
