SNAP and Washington Connection

SNAP, or nutrition assistance benefits, help you buy food you and your family need. You can even use SNAP benefits to buy seeds or plants and grow your own food. SNAP food benefits are loaded on your EBT card and can be used just like a credit card at any store that accepts SNAP. To see if you qualify for these benefits visit Washington Connection. It is a fast and easy way to apply for services that will help you get healthy food.  Follow this link:
