Milk Depots

There are three easy ways for donors to get their milk to the milk bank—ship directly door-to-door at the milk bank’s expense, drop off at the milk bank, or drop off at one of our milk depots.  

A milk depot is a community location that accepts milk from screened donors, stores it in a freezer, and ships it to the milk bank for processing. Depots are in locations that breastfeeding mothers visit, such as medical offices, parenting stores, wellness facilities, and day care centers. Depots play an important role in raising community awareness of milk donation.

Are you interested in opening a depot? You will need a freezer in a secure location and an employee or volunteer to oversee drop-off and shipping. For more information, please contact our depots email.  

Remember, you must be approved as a donor in order to drop off milk. Check our guidelines on donation to get started.

We have multiple milk depots located throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Addresses and contact details for each depot are provided to fully approved milk donors by our team here at the milk bank.
