Mission Statement

BreastfeedLA is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of infants and families through education, outreach, and advocacy to promote and support breastfeeding.


BreastfeedLA (formerly known as the Breastfeeding Task Force of Greater Los Angeles) formed in 1994 by a group of dedicated volunteers who wanted to make a difference in the breastfeeding rates in Los Angeles County. BreastfeedLA incorporated as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation in September of 2001.


BreastfeedLA commits to inclusion, diversity, and equity as core values, embracing meaningful participation from diverse stakeholders and actively soliciting varied viewpoints. Our work is grounded in diversity, inclusion, and equity to facilitate our mission of commitment to protecting, promoting, and supporting breastfeeding in the communities we serve.
