The FoodShare program was created to help stop hunger and to improve nutrition and health. FoodShare helps low-income people and families to buy the food they need for good health. Each month, individuals and families across Wisconsin get help from FoodShare. They are people of all ages who have a job but have low incomes, are living on a small or fixed income, have lost their jobs, are retired, or are disabled and unable to work.
