Extra FoodShare benefits ending. Starting March 1, 2023, members will only get their regular FoodShare benefits.
FoodShare members have been getting extra benefits each month because of a federal program during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those extra benefits have been provided separately from members’ regular monthly benefits. The federal government is ending that program. Starting March 1, 2023, members will only get their regular FoodShare benefits.
For example: In February 2023, a household will get $281 in regular FoodShare benefits plus $95 in extra COVID-19 FoodShare benefits for a total of $376 in FoodShare benefits. Starting in March 2023, the household will no longer get the extra $95 of benefits. Instead, that household will only get $281 in regular FoodShare benefits.
