Help for Individuals
FoodShare is a federal program and Wisconsin’s first line of defense against hunger. Funded 100% by the USDA, FoodShare is an entitlement program, meaning it assists people who have low incomes and difficulty affording food get monthly help to make ends meet.
FoodShare provides food buying power at the grocery store through an EBT card called Quest. Eligibility is based on household income and size.
Hunger Task Force and Piggly Wiggly are proud to partner on the Mobile Market. This grocery store on wheels travels throughout Milwaukee County to visit neighborhoods and communities that have limited access to fresh and healthy foods.
The Mobile Market schedule includes several senior centers and assisted living facilities to help make individualized shopping as easy as possible. The market is an active store, not a food pantry or donation center.
