Is money tight?
FoodShare Wisconsin is a benefit, like Social Security or Unemployment, that saves you money on groceries and frees up money for bills, medications and other necessities. FoodShare is distributed on the QUEST card, a debit card that is automatically loaded monthly with benefits. It can be used at most grocery stores, some Farmers' Markets and on community supported agriculture (CSAs).
