SNAP-Ed Update

*New* WAFOOD Survey Now LIVE!
The fourth wave of the WAFOOD survey in now live! The WAFOOD survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. As with prior surveys, this aims to capture a robust picture of food access, economic security, and physical and emotional well-being across Washington. The data will be shared back with stakeholders across the state (you included!) with valuable information that will help to inform and strengthen your ongoing responses to the needs of Washingtonians.


More information on the WAFOOD project and all published project reports can be found here on the project page. WAFOOD data was also heavily utilized in the recent Washington State Food Systems Assessment report.


The survey will remain open until January 15th, 2023. Please share this survey with your networks, so that the survey can reach as many SNAP-eligible folks as possible.
