Basic Food Employment & Training (BFET)

Train for a new career or prepare for employment with help from BFET.

Opportunities for vocational education and career development for low income students who qualify for, or who receive, basic food benefits.

 

 

In a partnership with Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Lower Columbia College offers opportunities for vocational education and career development to low income-students who qualify to receive, or are currently receiving, federally issued basic food benefits.

BFET can help You!

  • Access college
  • Train for a new career
  • Prepare for employment
  • Maintain basic food benefits

While BFET does not provide tuition assistance to students at this time, students may qualify for other assistance such as child care. BFET allows students who are receiving federally issued basic food benefits to continue receiving those benefits while attending school.
