The Food Share program helps persons and
families who have little money or savings to buy the food they need for good
health. This program is supervised by the State of Wisconsin under an
agreement with the US Department of Agriculture. The basic program rules are
the same everywhere in the United States.
Food share benefits are used for purchasing food at designated grocery
stores that participate in the Food Stamp Program.
Food share benefits are only used to pay for food. As the goal of the
Food Share Program is to make it easier for persons to have nutritious,
adequate diets, Food Share benefits cannot be used to buy alcoholic
beverages, tobacco or cigarettes, soap and paper products, pet food or other
Generally, individuals or families who use the Food Share Program are
disabled and cannot work, or they have lost their jobs, or they are employed
but do not make enough money to completely support their families. Some are
living on small, fixed incomes.
