Donating Milk is Easy!

Thank you for your interest in donating your milk to the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Tennessee (MMBTN). With the support from mothers like you, MMBTN provides lifesaving donor milk to the most critical infants. Please note, MMBTN does not compensate milk donors. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All milk donors are volunteers who produce milk in excess of their own babies’ needs. MMBTN covers the cost of the required blood test and the cost of shipping if you are not located near one of our Milk Drop Depots. We will also provide milk storage bags to our donors in need.
