What is FSET?

FSET is a VOLUNTARY employment and training program for recipients of FoodShare in Wisconsin. The primary goal of the FSET program is to help people gain employment. This goal is achieved by helping people increase skills and education and overcome barriers to employment.   


Ultimately, YOUR goals are OUR goals.

What is the Work Requirement?

Some FoodShare members must meet a work requirement to maintain FoodShare eligibility.  FoodShare members who are between the age 18 – 49, have no minors in their FoodShare group, and are found able to work are required to work 80 hours a month, or complete 80 hours of activities in a work program or complete a workfare assignment every month to remain eligible for FoodShare.


This work requirement is part of the ABAWD (Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents) policy.


Click the Work Requirement section of the menu to learn more about the work requirements.

We are proud of the thousands of customers who have found success while engaging in our FSET program! 


Through May 2018, more than 2,600 people have gained employment in our FSET program!

Video Stories

Check out the Video Stories of Leon, Samantha and Leon.

2018 State of the State Address

Governor Scott Walker recognized two FSET participants at the 2018 State of the State address - one from the NorthCentral Region! Below is the excerpt from his speech:

Since we started requiring employment and worker training, more than 25,000 people have gained employment. People like Thomas from Stevens Point. Thomas had been working a series of seasonal jobs. With our training program, he now has a permanent job with MedXcel at St. Michael’s in Stevens Point and says it’s his dream job.

Thomas was also highlighted in the Year 2 Report for the FSET program. Below is that profile.

2017 State of the State Address

Governor Scott Walker recognized two FSET participants at the 2017 State of the State address - both from the NorthCentral Region!  Check out the video clip here!  Below is an excerpt from his speech:

In addition to student success and accountable government, people told us over and over again that we need to be rewarding work. Today, I am proud to report that more than 21,000 people have gone through our Food Share Employment Training program and are working in Wisconsin.

They are people like Sandy in northern Wisconsin. She was struggling as a single mother of four when she signed up for the program. Within weeks, Sandy had multiple job offers and is now employed full-time. Sandy's story is a model of success, and now she gives back, as a speaker and mentor in the Eagle River community.

And people like Leon, who now works in Wisconsin Rapids. Our program staff helped him get the skills he needed to be employed and now he has a dream of starting his own cleaning business.

2016 State of the State Address

In 2016, two other NorthCentral's customers, Jessica and Thomas were recognized by Gov. Walker at the 2016 State of the State address.  Watch that video here
