Breast milk banks set to show up on streets next to regular banks2/21/2013
Give them time, and we're betting that breast-milk depots might eventually take over all those empty storefronts that used to belong to Blockbuster Video. Florida's first breast-milk collection center, The Gathering Place, has just opened in Miami — and its first donor, Ana Rodriguez, happily dropped off 500 ounces of breast milk: "I produce more than my baby can consume. It's a lot of work pumping so it's good that it's going to a good cause." Once the freezers are full of milk at The Gathering Place, staff will ship it off to a center in Texas that will pasteurize it and donate it to babies in need. It joins 11 other human milk banks across the U.S. [Source]
