What is EBT Card?
Electronic benefits transfer (EBT) is used by state agencies to distribute SNAP, TANF, WIC, and other government assistance benefits.
EBT cards look just like a credit or debit card and work similarly.
Once you are approved for food stamps or one of the other programs listed above, you will receive your benefits each month on an EBT Card.
SNAP EBT cards can be used at any eligible retailer in any state.
For example, a Maryland SNAP recipient can use their EBT card at SNAP-eligible California retailers.
Additionally, you can use your card at the grocery store to spend your benefits and some grocery stores will give you cashback with your cash purchase (if you have cash benefits on your EBT Card).
However, before you begin your shopping, make sure that the store accepts the EBT Card and you know your 4 digit PIN.

What Fast Food Places Take EBT/Food Stamps/SNAP?
The Restaurant Meals Program (RMP) is a federal program that enables qualified elderly, disabled, and homeless food stamps recipients to buy food at authorized restaurants. Any state or county can enroll in the Restaurant Meals Program.
The purpose of the program is to help expand food access to those who do not have a place to store and cook food, who may not be able to prepare food or who don’t have access to a grocery store.
Not all states participate in the RMP.
Currently, the Restaurant Meal Program is running in the following states:
- New York
- Rhode Island
If you don’t live in a state that has been approved to offer the RMP, you cannot use your SNAP EBT card at restaurants.
Unlike federal requirements that allow you to use your EBT card at grocery stores in different states, you have to live in RMP state to use your EBT card at approved restaurants.
Grocery Stores that accept EBT Online for Delivery
If you are an EBT Cardholder, you can now use your EBT card online to buy groceries for delivery!
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced in 2017, the selection of seven retailers for the initial launch of the SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot (Amazon, Dash’s Market, Fresh Direct, Hy-Vee, Inc., Safeway, ShopRite, Walmart Stores Inc., and Wright’s Markets).
In April 2019, the online purchasing program was launched in the state of New York, with Walmart, Amazon, and Shoprite as the participating retailers.
In March 2020, the USDA expanded its Online Purchasing Pilot to other states in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of November 2021, 47 states and the District of Columbia have been approved to allow SNAP EBT cardholders to use their benefits online to buy groceries.
