The QUEST Card
Is Money Tight? The QUEST Card can be used at most grocery stores, many Farmers' Markets, and other locations to help pay for groceries!
As a result of the federal government shutdown, many FoodShare members received February benefits early on January 20, 2019. Members who received an early issuance of February benefits will not receive an additional issuance during February, but QUEST cards will continue to work in February. Please budget and plan accordingly.
March FoodShare benefits will be issued on March 1. Any letters you may have received about your benefits, dated between January 19, 2019 and February 4, 2019, will indicate that your household will receive a $0 March FoodShare benefit due to the federal government shutdown. That is not correct. You will receive March benefits and, after February 9, 2019, get a new letter indicating the correct benefit amount.
Note: There is a false message on social media telling members they must use their FoodShare benefits immediately. This is not true.
