Washington State Basic Food Program
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, 12.5 percent of Washington residents participate in the Basic Food Program.
Basic food benefits can be used at any grocery store, convenience store, or farmers market that accepts EBT.
The easiest way to apply for food assistance is to contact us at 425.347.1229 or 800.824.2183. You can also email your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you.
