FoodShare Employment and Training (FSET)

The Federal Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program (SNAP) requires States to design and operate an employment and training program for adults receiving FoodShare (FS) benefits. In Wisconsin , this program is called the FoodShare Employment & Training Program, otherwise known as FSET. 

The purpose of FSET is to provide FS members free assistance and support needed to obtain competitive employment or enhance opportunities for career advancement. Services are designed to use the strengths, needs and preferences of the job seeker that will result in successful employment and increased earning potential. Persons interested in receiving FSET services should contact their local FS worker to ask what services are offered in their area. 

On July 1, 2014 the FoodShare program rules will be changing for FoodShare members living in Kenosha, Racine and Walworth Counties at their next renewal. Certain adults may need to meet a work requirement or be found exempt from a work requirement to continue getting FoodShare benefits.  Taking part in FSET can help satisfy the work requirement.  Learn more about FSET and the new program rules.
