Soul Food for Your Baby (SFYB) is a community program that empowers
African American families to breastfeed with their heart, body, and soul.
The nutritional, emotional, and health benefits of breastfeeding make it the best feeding choice for mothers and infants. However, African Americans are less likely to enjoy these benefits. Soul Food for Your Baby (SFYB) aims to increase breastfeeding rates in the African American community, starting in South Los Angeles. When fully launched the culturally targeted program will feature breastfeeding classes, support groups, and in-home support along with dynamic community outreach and social marketing activities.
