Change to Food Pantry Protocol

Federally-funded food pantries in Wisconsin will soon stop asking for visitor identification.

Wisconsin state health officials say the changes aim to improve access to the Emergency Food Assistance Program. Some pantry leaders say this raises concerns about tracking demographic information and more potential for food shortages. The pantries will have the choice to ID users until October, when the state will require them to stop.
