    The FoodShare program is an entitlement program for those who are eligible to assist them in purchasing food. The goal of the program is to make it easier for people to have a healthy, adequate diet. The program has income guidelines for eligibility. The amount of the FoodShare benefit is based on household size and income.

    Once eligible for the FoodShare program, families will receive a QUEST card which can be used to make their food purchases.
