About the Program

FoodShare 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 job, retired or are disabled and unable to work.

Workers answer these phone calls live and make changes, process applications and renewals, answer questions, and provide information. The WKRP Call Center can be reached at 1-888-794-5820.
