Starting May 21, 2020, people who receive FoodShare or Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits are now able to order and purchase food on Amazon’s and Walmart’s websites using their QUEST or P-EBT card. People can only use their QUEST or P-EBT card to purchase eligible food, just as they would at a physical store. Delivery fees cannot be paid with QUEST or P-EBT cards. Other grocery stores may offer other options to help people purchase their food safely and easily. For example, people can order their food online or over the phone, choose an EBT card payment option, and swipe their QUEST or P-EBT card when they pick up their order, either curbside or in store. Check with your local grocery stores to see what options they offer.
