The Mono County Breastfeeding Task Force formed in 2010 and is comprised of community members from First Five, Mammoth Hospital, Mono County Health Department, and Mono County WIC Program. Activities over the past three years have included public awareness events through participation in the Mammoth Lakes 4th of July Parade, collaboration with the Mammoth Times to produce an annual 16 page newspaper insert that features all the babies born in Mono County with articles that support and promote breastfeeding. We also created a resource guide for breastfeeding moms that lists local and on-line resources. Most recently, we have partnered with 25 local business and agencies to create breastfeeding friendly establishments.
