What is BF E&T?
BF E&T is the Basic Food Employment & Training program. Walla Walla Community College’s BF E&T program is a partnership with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) which offers educational and workforce training opportunities to students receiving Basic Food Assistance (formerly known as Food Stamps).
WWCC’s BF E&T program provides access and services to Basic Food recipients in Washington State. Services include education and job skills training, support services such as Working Connection Child Care subsidy, as well as job search assistance.
Enrolling in BF E&T allows you to maintain your Basic Food Assistance while you attend school, even if you are not able to meet the federal 20-hour per week work requirements. If you have been denied Basic Food benefits in the past due to not meeting this work requirement, BF E&T staff may be able to assist you in re-establishing your ability to receive food benefits.
