The midwestern region of the United States has gorgeous landscapes and some of the most popular cities in the country. The Midwest consists of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Known for its fast deliveries, Amazon also permits EBT cardholders to use their benefits for its online grocery services, Amazon Pantry and Amazon Fresh. These grocery services are not yet available if you live in Kansas or North Dakota. Amazon Fresh is only available in cities like Chicago and Minneapolis.
You can use Amazon Pantry to order grocery deliveries to your home. Deliveries are free with a minimum order amount of $35.
Amazon Fresh lets you order online with your EBT card and pickup your groceries at a nearby location.
If you live in the Midwest, Walmart and Hy-Vee are two popular stores that allow you to use EBT online or in person. Walmart is the largest retailer in the United States, and the majority of its stores accept SNAP EBT payments to pay for groceries in person.
In 2019 they launched a “pay at pickup” option that allows people to use their EBT card to shop online for food items. Walmart accepts online orders in 10 Midwest states but not from residents in Kansas or North Dakota. Hy-Vee is a midwestern grocery chain that accepts online EBT orders at certain locations
And if you live in North Dakota or South Dakota, Kroger and its sister stores— QFC and Fry’s Food Stores—accept EBT cards for grocery purchases in person and for online curbside orders.
