Pantry can handle demand from FoodShare cut

Two Democratic lawmakers are asking Governor Walker to step in, because more than 250,000 people could lose their FoodShare benefits.

The farm bill that Congress passed last year changed the eligibility requirements for the program. The lawmakers want Walker to use federal aid, to keep people on FoodShare. That's unlikely to happen, and Karen Ziemke of the St. Joseph Food Program says there's still a safety net in place. She says the Menasha-based food pantry could handle increased demand.

Ziemke says the pantry is seeing a slow increase in the number of people needing help this year.
