DHHS is also urging all Nebraskans to check their pantry to see if they have unexpired formulas in their household that they no longer need and consider donating it to their local food bank
Families that are participating in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program (SNAP) for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) may call their local WIC offices with further questions or concerns.
Also, all baby formula manufacturers have formula locater tools on their websites. These websites are not typically recommended since accuracy varies. It is recommended to call the individual stores listed on the formula locator first before going.
