DENVER — Governor Jared Polis took action this week in response to the nationwide baby formula shortage.

He signed an executive order declaring a disaster emergency and made funds available for Mothers’ Milk Bank to support free distribution of donor human milk across the state.

The emergency funds will subsidize the cost of donor human milk for families in need and cover fees for shipping milk for both donors and recipients.

Meanwhile, Mother’s Milk Bank is calling for donations of human milk or monentary donations to help families with costs.
