The first emergency aircraft for Operation Fly Formula landed, bringing 70,000 pounds of hypoallergenic formula, enough for 9,000 babies and 18,000 toddlers with cow’s milk allergies. But, this will only last for one week. The formula will be sent out to families through hospitals and pharmacies over the next two weeks.
