FoodShare Members Are Getting Additional FoodShare Benefits in January

If members are enrolled in FoodShare, they are getting additional benefits in January to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. All FoodShare members are getting at least $95 in additional benefits each month they are available. Some households will get more to bring their benefit amount to the maximum monthly benefit amount for their household size.

The benefits will be put on member QUEST cards on January 23. They will be sent a letter the week of January 24 telling them that they got the additional FoodShare benefits and how much was put on their QUEST cards.

We are also checking that everyone that should have received additional benefits got them. As a result, some members may get their November benefits on January 9.
