Food Assistance – Money for Groceries

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) was formally known as “food stamps.” In Washington State it is called the Basic Food Program.

Many families struggle to put enough food on the table. Basic Food helps families pay for food when they need it. Go to ParentHelp123 to find out if you qualify, and get help applying.

 

Kids Eat Free this Summer!

The Washington State Summer Meals Program provides free meals and snacks to all children and teens (18 years and younger) during the summer. No proof of income, address or citizenship is ever required. Summer Meals for kids are available at many sites in Snohomish County including schools, youth centers such as YMCA and Boys and Girls Clubs, churches, and more.
