Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is seeking nominations of employers who demonstrate excellence in providing support for breastfeeding mothers.

Along with several partners, the organization is hosting the fifth annual, 2019 Employer Excellence in Breastfeeding Support Award. The winner will be announced during World Breastfeeding Week in August.

Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic Dietitian Stacy Hackenmueller said, “Employers who go above and beyond to support breastfeeding in the workplace deserve recognition for their efforts.”

Workplace breastfeeding support might include a private pumping or nursing area with a comfortable chair, an electrical outlet, a small table for pumping, a sink with running water for clean-up, a flexible break schedule for pumping

Nominations for Yakima Valley employers will be accepted until July 15 at www.surveymonkey.com/r/BFaward.
