Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) / FoodShare
What is it?
FoodShare is Wisconsin’s first line of defense against hunger. Called the Supplemental Nutrition Program or SNAP nationally, this federal program provides food buying power at the grocery store through an EBT card called Quest. Eligibility is based upon your household income and size. The program requires proof of income, expenses and household members.
Why is it important?
FoodShare allows families to shop for foods in the grocery store that fit their dietary needs and cultural preferences. It is the most effective anti-hunger program in the country. Over 40% of participants are children, and most adult participants that can work, do work. You can enroll and manage your case without ever having to leave your home. Check out our FoodShare resource page for more information.
Who is eligible?
Eligibility for FoodShare is determined by income and household size. You can find out more about FoodShare and how to apply on our resource page.
