DHS Issues Message to FoodShare Members about March Benefit Letters


The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is alerting FoodShare members to letters that will say they are not receiving any benefits in March. The letters are automatically generated and represent the current scenario of no federal funding for the program in March because of the federal government shutdown. DHS officials say they continue to work with the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to understand the impacts the shutdown may have on March benefits. Because FoodShare benefits are 100 percent federally funded, the benefits have not been guaranteed. DHS is working with the Food & Nutrition Service and other federal and state agencies to explore options to fund benefits in March, should federal funding not be available.
