Coborn’s Adds EBT SNAP Benefits Through Instacart

St. Cloud, Minnesota-based Coborn’s Inc. will accept EBT SNAP payments online for same-day delivery through Instacart.

With this program, EBT SNAP participants will now be able to use their benefits to access fresh food and pantry staples from Coborn’s, Cash Wise and Marketplace Foods when shopping via the Instacart website and mobile app.  

This launch follows the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service’s most recent approval of Coborn’s, Cash Wise and Marketplace Foods locations to accept EBT SNAP payments online. With transportation often serving as a barrier to the grocery store, the grocer and Instacart hope to make accessing food easier for customers.

“Bringing food access and fresh food options to our guests has always been a top priority for us, and we are thrilled to finally offer this long-awaited enhancement in collaboration with Instacart,” said Dennis Host, SVP of marketing and communications.

“We are always looking for ways to offer our guests a quality online shopping experience, and the opportunity to offer EBT SNAP payment options online removes transportation barriers that many families in our communities are faced with. This will allow them greater access to fresh food faster.”

Once the customer selects their preferred store, an Instacart customer profile is created where they can enter their EBT food card information as a form of payment in their profile. Customers will need a secondary form of payment for non-food items such as taxes, tips and fees per federal SNAP guidelines.

Once items are added to the cart, customers will be able to select how much of their benefits they would like to use. Delivery fees will be waived on the first three EBT SNAP orders for customers using a valid EBT card associated with their Instacart account.
