The Washington State Basic Food Program is often referred to as “food stamps” or “SNAP.” The goal of this program is to reduce hunger and malnutrition by providing people with financial help to buy groceries.
You are not alone! At this time, 11 percent of Washington residents participate in the Basic Food Program.
Basic food benefits can be used at any grocery store, convenience store, or farmer’s market that accepts EBT.
