FoodShare Wisconsin 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 may have a job but have low incomes, are living on small or fixed income, have lost their job, or are retired or disabled and not able to work.

Your FoodShare benefits will be put into your FoodShare account each month using an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) system. Once your benefits are in your account, you can use your Wisconsin QUEST card to buy food at stores, farmers markets, and other places that accept EBT payments.

You can use your FoodShare benefits to buy food, such as:

  • Breads and cereals
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Meats, fish, and poultry
  • Dairy products
  • Seeds and plants to grow food for your family to eat

Learn more about what you can and cannot purchase with your benefits.
