Tomah Health Foundation Helps Hungry Families
Nov 18, 2022 – Tomah, WI
The Tomah Health Community Foundation is helping put healthy food in reach of struggling families in Monroe County.
Foundation officials recently donated three-thousand dollars to the Second Harvest Foodbank’s Food Share program, which foundation vice president Brian Eirschele (err-shlee) said will help families during tough economic times.
Formerly known as food stamps, eligible residents can apply and receive a debit card loaded with Food Share benefits that can be used at most grocery stores.
Since last year, Second Harvest has assisted with fifty Food Share applications in Monroe County, which accounted for more than thirty-three thousand meals for food insecure Monroe County residents.
Officials say one in thirteen adults and one in eight children in southwestern Wisconsin struggle with hunger.
Residents can learn if they are eligible for the program by visiting Get A Quest Card-dot-org or call the Food Share Help Line at
