I'm in Knoxville and looking to maybe donate some milk locally. Anyone know how to go about this beyond MilkShare, or is that the only way? I only have 75oz to donate right now, but I hope that I keep pumping more than the wee babe eats and can donate more. Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm in Knoxville, and three years ago wasn't able to find anyone local to donate to on Milkshare. I did end up giving some to someone local who I just happened to know, but that doesn't help you much - unless you put out the word to your local friends and someone knows someone. As a long shot, you could check in the special needs forum and see if there's anyone in Knoxville? Or maybe the breastfeeding forum?

I thought it would be nice to donate locally, since you do kill off some of the good stuff by freezing the milk, but you'd have to have good timing to get it to work. Let me know if you find anything useful, I'll probably try pumping again myself if things go well next year.
