BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Those in Louisiana with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits have been able to purchase groceries online for over a year.

Walmart was the first to accept benefits from EBT cardholders. The list of stores accepting SNAP benefits for online grocery shopping expanded last year. Since then, four more retailers have been added to the list. The number of retailers in Louisiana who will now take benefits has gone from eight to 12. The full list can be found below:

  • Albertson’s
  • Amazon
  • Brookshire’s Food and Pharmacy
  • Butcher Boy
  • Mac’s Super Market of Jena
  • River Queen Greens
  • Sam’s Club Scan and Go
  • Spring Market
  • Sprouts Farmers Market
  • Super 1 Foods Brookshires
  • Walmart

The responsibility of authorizing online retailers is managed by the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service.

According to the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, “Delivery and other associated costs are not covered by SNAP benefits.”
