DoorDash, Walgreens Expand Access For SNAP Customers

DoorDash Walgreens

DoorDash and Walgreens have collaborated to offer SNAP/EBT payment at nearly 7,800 Walgreens stores across the country.

DoorDash is the first platform that enables SNAP customers to make purchases from Walgreens using their SNAP/EBT cards. 

In addition, DoorDash is the first third-party delivery service provider to offer SNAP/EBT as a payment option at a major drugstore nationwide.

With the addition of Walgreens, DoorDash more than doubles the number of stores available for on-demand delivery with SNAP/EBT payments on DoorDash. 

“Since launching support for SNAP/EBT payments in 2023, over 1.1 million consumers have added their SNAP/EBT cards to DoorDash,” said Fuad Hannon, VP of new verticals. 

“This first-of-its-kind partnership with Walgreens offers convenient and critical access to food and pantry essentials for families and individuals across the country. We’re proud to remove as many barriers as possible when it comes to connecting people with food, wherever they live and however they choose to shop.”

As prices continue to rise on groceries and household essentials, consumers can order SNAP-eligible products using their SNAP benefits from their local Walgreens through DoorDash. Walgreens will offer more than 4,000 SNAP-eligible products for delivery within an hour on DoorDash. 

“This collaboration with DoorDash means our shoppers can now get essential grocery items when they want, regardless of payment method and other barriers like work schedules and transportation,” said Balachandra Visalatha, SVP, chief product officer at Walgreens. 

“Walgreens is a go-to destination for daily needs for our shoppers, and we continue to find solutions that make their shopping experience simpler so they can get access to healthier food options.”

DoorDash will offer SNAP/EBT consumers, who are currently not DashPass subscribers, $0 delivery fee on up to three orders paid with SNAP at Walgreens.

Currently, Walgreens stores accept SNAP/EBT in-person at most locations. This collaboration with DoorDash allows shoppers across the nation to use SNAP/EBT at any Walgreens, regardless of where they live.
