How can the Basic Food employment and training (BF E&T) program help me find work?

The Basic Food employment and training (BF E&T) program is the name for Washington's voluntary supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) employment and training program.
(1) If you receive federally funded Basic Food benefits, you may choose to receive services through the BF E&T program in one or more of the following activities, if we currently provide the service in the county where you live:
(a) Job search;
(b) Paid or unpaid work;
(c) Training or work experience;
(d) High school equivalency classes; or
(e) English as a second language (ESL) classes.
(2) If you are eligible to participate in a BF E&T activity, there is no limit to the number of hours you can participate.
(3) If you receive benefits under the state-funded food assistance program (FAP), you are not eligible to participate in BF E&T.
