Aldi, Instacart Expand EBT SNAP Online To 23 States And D.C.

Aldi commitment

Instacart, a leading online grocery platform in North America, will be expanding its Electronic Benefit Transfer and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (EBT SNAP) integration in partnership with Aldi. EBT SNAP online payment will be available at nearly 90 percent of Aldi stores across 23 states and Washington, D.C.

This expansion follows the USDA Food and Nutrition Service’s most recent approval, allowing Instacart and Aldi to expand their online EBT SNAP pilot. It follows the initial rollout of the program across more than 60 store locations in Georgia, which launched in mid-November, and more than 570 stores across California, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania and Texas, which launched in early December.

“Our mission is to create a world where everyone has access to the food they love and more time to enjoy it together. Today, we’re proud to further our mission and continue our commitment to being a long-term solution for EBT SNAP households across America,” said Andrew Nodes, VP of retail at Instacart.

“As the country continues to grapple with COVID-19, we recognize the important role Instacart and its retail partners play in making same-day grocery delivery and pickup available to more people nationwide. We’re proud of the work we’ve done with Aldi and the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to unlock EBT SNAP online payments for more families, and we look forward to continuing to expand this important program.”

Added Scott Patton, VP of national customer interaction services for Aldi U.S., “Aldi is proud to be the first grocery retailer to accept EBT SNAP benefits as a form of payment online via Instacart for grocery delivery and curbside pickup.”

To help subsidize costs for EBT SNAP beneficiaries, during a 90-day period starting Dec. 16, Instacart will waive delivery and/or pickup fees on up to the first three EBT SNAP orders for each customer with a valid EBT card associated with their account. Aldi delivery and pickup via Instacart will be available daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Aldi began offering delivery service via Instacart in 2018. The grocery delivery and pickup service currently delivers nationwide from more than 2,000 Aldi stores.
