Giant Food announced today that individuals and families across Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware using Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can pay for their online pickup and delivery orders using an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.
“Convenience and value are of great importance at Giant and as online grocery demand continues at an all-time high, we are excited to make shopping more accessible for our SNAP customers on Giantfood.com,” said Gregg Dorazio, Director of eCommerce for Giant Food.
“The rollout of online EBT payments further supports our mission to increase access to healthy food and support hunger relief efforts in the communities we serve, especially as food insecurity issues have been further exacerbated by the effects of the pandemic.”
Through the new offering, customers have the option to add their EBT card to their account on Giantfood.com and shop using their SNAP funds. When shopping online, SNAP customers can filter products to view “SNAP Eligible” items. At checkout, customers can select the “Apply SNAP benefits” option and select the amount to charge to their EBT card.
To pay for items that are not eligible, SNAP customers will need to provide an alternative preferred credit/debit card or checking account. In addition, online orders are subject to a $2.95 fee and delivery orders are subject to a fee between $7.95 and $9.95.
To avoid any additional fees, SNAP customers can opt to shop in-store.
