CBC: Winnipeg Harvest needs $100K for baby formula

December 2, 2015 — 

As the CBC reports:

Winnipeg Harvest is in urgent need of donations to buy baby formula….

“Infancy is such a critical time for growth and development. Proper nutrition is absolutely essential for babies to get off to a healthy start,” Joyce Slater of the University of Manitoba department of human nutritional sciences stated in the news release.

“They require the key vitamins and minerals in breast milk, but if mothers can’t breastfeed, these nutrients need to be provided through high-quality breast milk substitutes such as infant formula.”
