Parent Pit Stop at Tanana Valley State Fair:

The Fairbanks Breastfeeding Coalition organizes and hosts a booth at the Tanana Valley Fair each year in cooperation with the Lion’s Club and other local sponsors. This booth offers a safe and clean space to feed infants and young children and change diapers. It also allows for breastfeeding and local resource information to be offered to families in an effort to support families of young children in our community. This year the fair runs from August 2-11, 2019. Stay tuned for information on how you can volunteer to sign up for a 3 hour shift to staff this booth during the fair.

World Breastfeeding Week:

We will celebrate World Breastfeeding Week August 1-7, 2019 with other breastfeeding supporters around the world.
