Earnings and Service Receipt after Leaving Food Assistance in Washington State

This report assesses the frequency of “successful exits” from the Basic Food program and examines how the characteristics of successfully exiting households differ from other households exiting from, and remaining on, Basic Food. Success is based on consistent household earnings significantly above the poverty level in the two years following exit without a return to Basic Food. Results show that “successful exits” are more likely for households with higher educational attainment and a track record of employment and earnings.
