Ready, Set, Go for Babies!
Soul Food for Your Baby (SFYB) is excited to participate in the Great Human Race, a 5K run/walk to raise funds for breastfeeding in the African American community! Please help us reach our goal of raising $750 on Saturday, March 24th!
We know that breast milk is the best milk for developing infants. Yet fewer African American mothers breastfeed compared to other groups. This means many benefits are missed and health risks such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, and infant death are increased for African American children.
Fueled by the desire to see higher breastfeeding rates and better health outcomes in African American children, SFYB has been working to revive breastfeeding in South Los Angeles since 2007 through community outreach and education, breastfeeding classes, and support groups.
The Great Human Race allows community-based nonprofits to raise funds for their worthy causes. Interim Executive Director Elizabeth Woods will walk with her family for Soul Food for Your Baby as part of the 5K walk in Durham, NC. Your donation will support core operations that will help us with community outreach and tangible breastfeeding support in South Los Angeles!
