The result is a new network called Eats on Feets — a play on Meals on Wheels — that uses Facebook to connect women whose babies need supplemental breast milk to women nearby who have extra milk to give away.

More than 70 matches have been reported so far, with milk coming not only in bags and jars, but also sometimes directly from the source.
