FoodShare

What is Foodshare?
FoodShare Wisconsin was created to help stop hunger and to improve nutrition and health. FoodShare helps people with limited money buy the food they need for good health. People across Wisconsin get help from FoodShare. They are people of all ages who have a job but have low incomes, are living on a small or fixed income, have lost their job, or are retired or disabled and not able to work.
 
FoodShare benefits are placed on a debit card called the Wisconsin QUEST card.
 
Extra FoodShare Benefits Ended February 2023
FoodShare members had been getting extra benefits each month because of a federal program during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those extra benefits were provided separately from members' regular monthly benefits. The federal government ended that program and effective March 1, 2023, members are now receiving their regular FoodShare benefits. Learn more about how your FoodShare benefits may havechange on the FoodShare News and Updates webpage
