Easy access to affordable, quality and a variety of grocery items should be a given standard in our society. Amazon is helping to make that more possible by making the grocery shopping experience more accessible through their acceptance of SNAP benefits. You can now shop Amazon’s wide grocery selection with a SNAP EBT card, which means getting food to more people in a safer and more convenient way.

First, let me tell you why spreading the word of this is so important to me. My mom immigrated to this country at only 20 years old from Jamaica and was a single mom. At the time, she didn’t have a lot of money to provide for me, so she relied on programs such as WIC and vouchers to help cover my daycare costs while she went to school to obtain her college education and so that she could work. It was through these benefits that she found the help necessary to get on her feet and establish herself. I am a big supporter of any program that gives people the access to things that should be a basic right, especially when it comes to something as important as food.

During a time when we have been encouraged to practice social distancing, online grocery shopping through Amazon can help give people an easier, safer and more convenient way to get the food they need. SNAP recipients can enjoy time saving benefits with free and convenient home delivery on available qualifying orders, and get this – you don’t need a prime member to participate.

As someone who shops on Amazon for my pantry staple items and groceries, the variety of food that you can get from there is amazing. In most metropolitan areas, SNAP cardholders can also shop Amazon Fresh for fresh produce, meat, and more.

Shopping on Amazon using an EBT card is simple and can be done in three quick steps. First, add your SNAP EBT card. Then shop Amazon’s wide variety of groceries and save with exclusive deals. Once you have everything you need, just enter your EBT PIN to pay for eligible items.

From my home island favorite, Jamaican jerk seasoning, to staples like salt and vinegar, you can find it all on Amazon. Your SNAP card also qualifies you for a range of budget-saving offers that include exclusive discounts across grocery brands and select food products are 15% off with an EBT card through December 31!
