Smith’s Food and Drug stores are now accepting online EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) payments for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) grocery orders. Through the Smith’s website or app, customers can add their EBT account number as a new card on their account profile. Checkout is easy by selecting EBT as the payment method and entering a PIN number.
“Thousands of Smith’s shoppers place digital orders every week. Now, we are opening our digital grocery shopping experience to more people, with fresh, affordable food conveniently available through Pickup or Delivery,” said Tina Murray, Smith’s Corporate Affairs Manager.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, SNAP, a program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is the nation’s largest federal effort to reduce hunger and reached 38 million people in 2019. Online ordering at Smith’s will allow SNAP shoppers more options as the Kroger-owned grocery chain will continue to allow EBT payments in-store as well.
