Take action for a healthy, hunger-free and thriving Wisconsin
The state budget bills (AB 64 and SB 30) include a number of provisions that would reduce access to FoodShare for up to 100,000 of our friends and neighbors. At the same time, they would also expand important programs EITC and the WisconsinShares program that help working Wisconsin families with low-incomes.
The state budget process is also an important opportunity to urge our policymakers to take the Medicaid expansion provided under the ACA to fight hunger, improve health and strengthen local communities by saving hundreds of millions of dollars through the recovery of federal funds.
These are important choices that our legislators will be making over the next few months that will affect our state's ability to take steps forward toward a healthy, hunger-free and thriving Wisconsin.
