What is it?
FoodShare—Wisconsin’s name for food stamps—is the first line of defense against hunger. FoodShare benefits are funded 100% by the federal government.
Why is it important?
People who receive FoodShare benefits use a debit style card (known as a QUEST/EBT card) to purchase healthy foods from grocery stores or Farmers Markets. FoodShare benefits may only be used to purchase food, not including hot or prepared items.
Who is eligible?
Eligibility for FoodShare is determined by income and household size. Wisconsin income limits can be found here.
