Basic Food is Washington’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
Basic Food provides monthly benefits to supplement grocery money while promoting healthy eating and reducing food insecurity. Benefits are automatically loaded onto an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card bi-monthly. EBT cards can be used to buy food at participating grocery stores. Each year the Basic Food program is allotted a certain amount of money based on the number of eligible households, so the program is accessible to everyone who qualifies.
