EBT Online Purchasing
EBT Online Purchasing was introduced as a pilot program in the Agricultural Act of 2014 (PL-113-79), also known as the Farm Bill. The program allows NA participants to purchase groceries online and CA participants to use their benefits to purchase products online. Since its launch, more retailers have joined the program giving participants a wide variety of products to choose from.
Only eligible food may be purchased with NA benefits; delivery fees and other associated charges may not be paid for with NA benefits but may be paid with CA benefits.
Many retailers offer delivery services; however, the delivery may be limited or unavailable in some areas. Participants should contact the store for available options, including delivery cost options.
