Uber Eats Will Start Accepting Food Stamps

With prices of goods on the rise and access to fresh and healthy foods crucial for households, the Uber East team has been hard at work building new tools to help customers save time and money.

On Tuesday, Uber Eats announced changes customers will see in the Uber Eats app later this year or in 2024 that will help you get (almost) anything, faster and easier than ever before, without breaking the bank.

Online food delivery can have a meaningful impact in reducing barriers to fresh groceries, especially for the most vulnerable–including people living in food deserts, seniors, and those facing disabilities or transportation barriers. Helping to improve access to quality food is incredibly important to the work at Uber and they are proud to use Uber’s technology and extensive local delivery networks to offer SNAP recipients the ability to use their benefits to access fresh groceries conveniently from the app in 2024.

Uber Eats is not the only option for grocery food delivery if you have SNAP/EBT. Customers can also use SNAP benefits to order via Instacart. In addition, depending on what state you live in, you might also be able to use SNAP/EBT for Walmart’s online ordering options.

In addition, if you order curbside pickup, SNAP/EBT is also accepted at Fry’s/Kroger and Amazon allows customers to link their SNAP cards with their accounts so that they can use these benefits when shopping on their website.
