This program 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.
Each month, people across Wisconsin get help from FoodShare. They are people of all ages who have a job but have low incomes, are living on small or fixed income, have lost their job, retired or are disabled and not able to work.
