Food Share

About the Program


Food Share was created to help stop hunger and to improve nutrition and health. Food Share 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 Food Share. They are people of all ages who have a job but have low incomes, are living on small or fixed income, have lost their job, retired or are disabled and unable to work.
