Food Stamp Enrollment
Every month, thousands of Seattle families struggle with access to healthy food. If you’re one of those families, we can make that struggle a little easier. While the food we offer in our walk-in food bank can make a huge difference, we know that there are other important resources that can help you too. Food stamps are one of these resources, and we can help you sign up for them.
According to United Way of King County, more than half of those eligible for food stamps in our area don’t apply for them. We want to help you access the food stamp benefits you and your family are entitled to receive. Benefits that will help you keep healthy food on your table. We can help you check your eligibility and apply online through Washington’s online benefits portal.
Next time you’re in the food bank, ask how we can help connect you with food stamps. Don’t want to wait until your next food bank visit (or not a normal food bank customer)? Call or email our office and we can talk about eligibility criteria and see if you might qualify. It never hurts to ask, and it certainly doesn’t cost you anything.
