Solid Ground SNAP Ed Program

About Us

For over 47 years, Solid Ground has worked to increase food security and combat health inequities in our Seattle/King County community through a combination of housing programs, direct education, and food access policy, systems, and environmental changes. Solid Ground also trains and supports organizations and health promoters implementing Cooking Matters across the state of Washington.
