The FoodShare program helps low-income individuals and families to obtain a more nutritious diet.
FoodShare is available to families, single adults, disabled individuals and SSI recipients. Each household must meet income needs tests. The FoodShare program is meant to supplement a household’s income to purchase food.
More information regarding FoodShare can be located on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website. FoodShare may be able to help you improve your nutrition and health. The easiest and fastest way to apply for FoodShare and set a filing date is to apply online at "ACCESS".
Applications are also available by mail, by stopping by Kewaunee County Human Services in person or contacting the East Central Income Maintenance Partnership at 1-888-256-4563.
This program requires an interview either by phone or in-person. You will be contacted initially by phone once we have your application. If eligible for benefits, they are deposited in an Electronic Benefit account for your access. For news on healthy eating, please visit the website Food $ense web page through Extension.
