Formula Update

The formula shortage is impacting residents in our communities. In response to this, PDHD has developed a survey for organizations to submit if they have formula available. The public is able to see these responses in real time. Please use the most recent response from an organization as they may fill out the survey more than once due to supply changes.

Many parents are being forced to change their infant’s formula due to the shortage. Changing an infant’s formula may cause them temporary digestive upset that should subside in two to three days.  Please call your doctor if your infant develops projectile vomiting, or a rash.

Please DO NOT make homemade formula and DO NOT give dairy milk to children under 12mos old.

You can buy ANY formula with SNAP, if available.


WIC Participants please call PDHD clinics if you need your formula changed. We will change it while you are standing in the store. Hours are Monday through Thursday 7:30-4:30 and Fridays 7:30-11a.
