Mission & Vision

Our Mission:
Soul Food for Your Baby aims to revive the art of breastfeeding among African American women through systems change and culturally competent media, educational and community outreach.

Our Vision:
We want to revive the tradition of breastfeeding in the African American community by making breast milk the first and only “soul food” of African American babies for at least the first six months of life. This will lead to improved health and well-being among African Americans in infancy and over the life course. We want to see every mother form a close bond with her child through breastfeeding that is enhanced by a family, community, and nation who embraces her decision to breastfeed.
