In response to a recent nationwide infant formula recall, Hunger Task Force is taking measures to ensure a safe and reliable supply of formula at Milwaukee food pantries providing infant needs.

Hunger Task Force notified its pantry network partners about the recalled formula—which includes select lots of Abbott Nutrition Similac, Alimentum and EleCare formulas—and removed the formula from its food bank’s supply. Safe formula has been re-stocked.

Simultaneously, Hunger Task Force has also launched an interactive map on which parents of infants can use to locate the nearest food pantry providing infant formula.

Families in need of emergency assistance can also contact 211 to locate the nearest pantry in their neighborhood.
