WASHINGTON STATE BASIC FOOD PROGRAM
Second Harvest strives to build healthier communities by increasing access to nutritious food for people in need. As part of that, our goal is to connect more people with the Washington State Basic Food Program (commonly known as food stamps).
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), called Basic Food in Washington, helps low-income people make ends meet by providing monthly benefits to buy food. The federally funded food program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) targets the food budget shortfall experienced by families in need and also brings needed dollars into our communities.
USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender. Basic Food is available to all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religion, or political belief.
