Report Highlights Food Benefits Failures

Tens of thousands of low-income kids in Wisconsin missed-out on extra food stamp money because the state’s Department of Public Instruction doesn’t know where they live.

A new report says the state failed to get the kids, and their families, over 12-hundred-dollars in extra benefits that were supposed to make-up for the meals the kids were missing at school. The report says DPI doesn’t have addresses for over 78-thousand kids in the state. Neither Governor Evers’ office, the state’s Department of Health Services, or DPI had any answers as to how the kids fell through the cracks, or how the kids and their families will be made whole.
