Brian, Texas (KBTX) – Nationwide deficits have negatively affected the Brajos Valley. Baby formulas are difficult for parents to get their hands on with shelves in low-running department stores on a regular basis.
Beth Collins is a mother of four and says the supply of infant formula has never been so low. “The shelves are empty. I was actually at Sam's yesterday and posted a picture of what they have and went there today, and half of what was yesterday is no longer there. And so when they get something on the shelves, it doesn't last long, “said Collins. She has also started a Facebook group called Baby Feeding Support! To help parents identify formulas and other baby food requirements in stores.
The shortage of baby formulas has also affected food banks across the country. Brajos Valley Food Bank says it currently has some stock of the product but no matter how expensive it may be, they do not receive regular subsidies. “If you look at the price of baby food, that can can range from থেকে 10 to 15 15 to 30 30 to 40 40. If anyone decides to donate, they are probably going to buy more cost-effective items that could spread to the whole family, “said Ebony Knight-Tennell, director of operations at Brazzos Valley Food Bank.
At a Catholic charity in Central Texas, Brajos Valley director John Passio has seen the impact of low supply in getting clues to their clients. “Our supplies are fairly decent, and we don't usually get as much as we would like due to shortages,” he said.
While the country is waiting for a solution, parents like Sandra Daniels are frustrated. “I don't even want to go to Formula One because I know it's empty. I feel for other parents because I keep driving miles and miles from one store to another trying to find it. I was online, I was out of town trying to find a formula, it's scary, “said Daniels.
Experts say there is no clear end to the lack of baby formula right now. They suggest that parents work with their doctors to find alternative solutions.
