Mapping Hunger & Poverty in Wisconsin
Hunger Task Force put together a county by county look at FoodShare enrollment across Wisconsin. In the year after the work requirement as part of the FoodShare Employment and Training Program over 40,000 people in the state have been disenrolled from the program, losing their food benefits for a 3 year period. We look at how each county has been impacted, who actually uses FoodShare, and how each county compares to the rest of the state and nation.
Additionally the 20 counties with the highest amount of children that qualify for free or reduced price meals are highlighed with a special School Breakfast Report Card. Wisconsin annually ranks near the back of the pack when it comes to serving school breakfast to children from low-income families. We grade districts on how many kids have access to school breakfast, what model of service they employ and compare school breakfast participation to childhood poverty in the county.
