As of April 28, 2020, individuals and families have options for purchasing groceries online using their EBT card:
- Home delivery using your EBT card at Amazon and Walmart.
- Home delivery with the Instacart app and their participating stores. For a complete list of participating Instacart stores, visit Instacart’s EBT Online information page.
- Groceries can also be purchased online for pick up at participating Albertsons, Safeway, and Vons locations.
- Sam’s Club does not currently offer EBT shopping or payments online, but some Sam’s Club locations offer EBT payments through the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app. Pay with your EBT card through the app to skip the lines at participating physical locations. Visit their Scan & Go app information page to learn more.
California is actively working to expand the number of stores that accept EBT online in the future. Please check back for future updates to the list of participating stores.
