Food Assistance Program (FAP)
The Washington State Department of Agriculture's (WSDA) Food Assistance Programs assist local organizations and tribes in providing emergency food to low income and vulnerable individuals throughout Washington State. Our goals are to alleviate hunger and increase the amount of nutritious foods distributed through emergency food programs while supporting the agricultural community.
For food assistance or to donate, contact your local food provider by using one of the links to the right or contact the Food Assistance Programs at email@example.com
