How to Get Food Stamps in Washington 
_________________________________________________________________________________

In the State of Washington, the food stamp program is a welfare program that is specifically designed to curb issues such as hunger and starvation in the state of Washington. People that have the unfortunate circumstances of low income, disabilities, or the inability to afford healthy or nutritious food will have the assurance that they will still be able to eat from the food stamp program. Once a qualifying individual decides that the Washington food stamp program is something that would benefit them, they will begin the Washington food stamp application process.

1. To begin the Washington food stamp application process, a qualifying individual must acquire a Washington Food Stamp application form. The application is often available at many governmental welfare offices, but it is also conveniently available for anybody to print from the internet. If you wish to print out a copy of the Washington food stamp application, you may do so at the following web site.

2. If you decide to fill out the application online, you will then wait to hear from the DSHS office for further instructions including the status of your application. Since food stamps are extremely vital to so many people who don't want to rely on computers, many choose to wish to hand in their application at a DSHS office. If you would like to find out the location of a local DSHS office near you, you can find it at the following web site.

3. After the DSHS office has reviewed and approved your Washington Food Stamp application, you will receive your benefit card in the mail. This card will work very similar to any debit card but it will be called an EBT card. Your Washington Food Stamps benefits will only work for the purchase of food items, and will not work for any other non food item bought in the store. If you have any trouble using the Washington food stamps contact any DSHS office near you.
