Kroger Mid-Atlantic announced it will now accept EBT payment for all online grocery orders.
“Thousands of Kroger shoppers place digital orders every week,” said James Menees, Corporate Affairs Manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic. “Now, we are opening our digital grocery shopping experience to more people available through pickup or delivery. This is another important way we are connecting our neighbors to the foods that will help them live healthier, thriving lives.”
Kroger has accepted Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for many years. Now Kroger Mid-Atlantic customers can use EBT payments to purchase groceries through the Kroger app or at kroger.com. Customers can create an account through the Kroger app or at kroger.com. Simply add an EBT account number as a new card under “My Account” and “Wallet.” Fill a cart with SNAP-eligible items, select a pickup or delivery time and checkout. Once in the checkout screen, select EBT as the payment method and enter the PIN to confirm the order.
Customers can begin exploring healthier options using Kroger’s OptUP nutrition rating system, which is accessible through the Kroger app or at kroger.com. As customers fill their carts, they can see a nutrition score for their favorite items and explore “better-for-you” alternatives. They also can shop items that are aligned to specialized diets, including low sodium, no sugar added or contains probiotics.
