Some good news for families despite Government shutdown

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced today that funding for February benefits will be available for current FoodShare members. Those benefits and programs include the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), despite the federal government shutdown. 

“During this time of uncertainty, Wisconsin residents should be assured that FoodShare, WIC, and other federally funded food assistance programs will continue uninterrupted through February,” said DHS Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm.
