Wisconsin will lose tens of millions in food assistance for the month of May following a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling eliminating the state’s public health emergency declaration.

If the ruling had been made a day later, the funding would have been preserved, according to the Department of Health Services.

“Because the Wisconsin State Supreme Court chose to rule March 31 and not in April, families will not receive their emergency FoodShare allotments for May…. and each month thereafter, leaving tens of thousands of families without access to much-needed nutritious foods,” DHS spokeswoman Elizabeth Goodsitt said.
