On February 8th, 2021, Jenn Weaver, the Mayor of Hillsborough NC, proclaimed the Town of Hillsborough as a Breastfeeding Family Friendly Community. The town is committed to supporting breast/chest/human milk feeding families and working towards the Breastfeeding Family Friendly Community designation.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Dietetic Association, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, American Academy of Family Physicians, and other leading health organizations, breastfeeding is the optimal food for infants. Families are a priority in Hillsborough and part of helping families to thrive is ensuring that they receive community support to develop and sustain healthy lifestyles. By providing a supportive and welcoming environment, a breastfeeding friendly community encourages families of all races and ethnicities to continue breastfeeding.Town of Hillsborough, Board of Commissioners Meeting, February 8, 2021
