Your Wisconsin QUEST card is a safe and easy way to use your FoodShare benefits. Your QUEST card can be used to buy groceries at swipe card terminals at stores taking part in FoodShare. It is a plastic debit card with your name, card number, and the Wisconsin QUEST logo on it.
Each month that you are enrolled in FoodShare, your benefits will automatically be added to your QUEST card. The date you get your benefits is based on the eighth digit of your Social Security Number (SSN).
