FORT CAVAZOS, Texas – The Fort Cavazos Women, Infant, and Children’s clinic will celebrate world breastfeeding with the Grand Opening of the Fort Cavazos Milk Depot Aug. 23.
This is the first, and currently the only military human milk collection site, which is truly worth celebrating.
The depot will work in conjunction with the Milk Bank of Austin. Since October 2022, it has collected over 19,000 ounces and that amount has helped feed over 6,000 at-risk and sick infants across the United States, and since opening in 1999, has provided 60,000 babies in the U.S. with human milk.
