About SFYB

In response to perpetuating low breastfeeding rates and health disparities, Soul Food for Your Baby was created in 2006 to address breastfeeding concerns that impact African American families.

What distinguishes SFYB from other programs is that it:

  • Emphasizes a cultural connection to breastfeeding and links nursing to the experience, history and legacy of members of the African American Diaspora
  • Targets African American families
  • Delivers a critical message to the people who need it
  • Encourages community support & collaboration
