FREE Infant Formula Distribution Program

6.13.24 Free Infant Formula

Good Afternoon School Food Authorities, Child and Adult Care Food Program Sponsors and Summer Food Service Program Sponsors:

Lt. Governor Hall-Long, the Food Bank of Delaware and many state and community partners launched The Infant Formula Distribution Program last year in response to the national infant formula shortage. Canisters of Care A2+ infant formula were secured to be provided to parents of children under the age of one throughout the state for FREE.

As we enter the summer months when we know budgets are tighter, we want to raise awareness about the program to partner with more organizations and reach families in need.

Currently, 35 sites across all three counties carry canisters of Care A2+ infant formula at public locations. We are always looking to partner on additional public sites and on special events to reach families. Here’s what to know:

·                     Families can pick up multiple cans – that means 1, 2, 3 or 10 cans if needed!

·                     There is no paperwork required to pick up cans

·                     You can find information on the initiative and where to pick up cans of formula at this link: https://ltgov.delaware.gov/formula/

If you would like to partner or if your organization could use a refresh in supply, you can submit a request utilizing this Request Form. The formula expires this fall. You can also email ltgov_comms@delaware.gov with questions. 

Thank you!
