SNAP Online Purchasing Program


Buy groceries online with your Delaware EBT card beginning July 1, 2020.

Delaware's new SNAP Online Purchasing Program gives households another grocery shopping option during the COVID-19 crisis.

Starting July 1, 2020, Delaware households can use their SNAP food benefits or P-EBT benefits to order groceries online for pick-up or delivery from participating ShopRite and Walmart stores and at Amazon.

Households will be able to shop and pay for SNAP eligible food items online by using their EBT card at checkout. Households can only use their EBT card online at stores and retailers that accept SNAP EBT online payments. Households cannot pay for service, delivery, shipping, or membership fees with EBT benefits.

SNAP ONLINE PURCHASING PILOT

Delaware's SNAP Online Purchasing Program is part of a USDA pilot program to provide SNAP recipients with greater access to healthy and fresh food options. The program started in a few states in 2019 to test the feasibility and implications of allowing retail food stores to accept SNAP benefits through online transactions. The USDA opened the program to all states in the spring of 2020 to give individuals and families an additional way to shop for groceries during the COVID-19 emergency, which resulted in new health and safety guidelines that have made it challenging for many households to travel and shop.

The Division of Social Services is implementing SNAP Online Purchasing to ensure that SNAP recipients have equal access to food purchasing options and can meet their food needs during the pandemic.
