Shared from Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS)
DHS Works with USDA and Retailers to Make Grocery Shopping Flexible and Safe for FoodShare Households
Wisconsin households that use FoodShare will now be able to shop on Amazon.com and Walmart.com. FoodShare has seen an increase in applications since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program provides funds to eligible households to purchase groceries using what looks like a debit card.
To support members in safely using their benefits during the pandemic, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) applied to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to expedite implementation of online purchasing for FoodShare benefits. That application was approved last week.
