Sen. Nguyen By Request: Department of Social and Health Services

Although the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) administers food benefits programs referred to as "basic food" and the "food assistance program," multiple sections of the Revised Code of Washington that use the obsolete term "food stamps" when referencing the programs. Obsolete terms are removed from previous codes and replaced with “food benefits.”
