FoodShare ending- call 211 for help

FoodShare members have been getting extra benefits because of a federal program during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those extra benefits have been provided separately from members’ regular monthly benefits. Last month, the WI Dept. of Health Services (DHS) announced that because the federal government is ending that program, members will only get their regular FoodShare benefits starting March 1, 2023.
Anyone who needs additional nutritional support can:
•    Call 211 or 877-947-2211 to find a local food pantry.
•    Check if they are eligible for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) - a federal program that provides food assistance to those with low incomes. 
•    Check if they are eligible for the WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Program - a state program that helps Wisconsin families, including dads and other caregivers, with food benefits, nutrition education, and breastfeeding support.
