DoorDash, Forage Partner To Expand SNAP/EBT Payments On Delivery Orders

DoorDash delivery

Forage and DoorDash have begun a partnership to expand SNAP/EBT acceptance on the platform.

Since launching support for SNAP/EBT payments in 2023, more than 1.1 million consumers have added their SNAP/EBT cards to DoorDash.

Forage’s integration, enhanced reliability and SNAP experts help to accelerate the USDA authorization process for merchants on DoorDash, reducing the time it takes for them to start accepting SNAP/EBT on the app. Through this partnership, consumers can order SNAP-eligible groceries from more merchants while using their SNAP benefits on DoorDash.

“We’re thrilled to partner with DoorDash and expand on-demand grocery delivery for SNAP shoppers,” said Ofek Lavian, co-founder and CEO of Forage. “This collaboration is at the heart of our mission, and we’re extremely proud to play a role in removing as many barriers as possible when it comes to increasing access to food for low-income Americans.”

Forage’s partnership with DoorDash aims to accelerate the acceptance of SNAP across the platform, broadening access to food for more than 14 million people who are living in food deserts and over 40 million people living in communities where more than one in 10 households receive SNAP/EBT benefits.

“Our partnership with Forage supports our commitment to increase access to food for vulnerable communities,” said Fuad Hannon, VP of new verticals at DoorDash.

“Growing the acceptance of SNAP/EBT payments can help families meet childcare and work obligations, relieve seniors of the potential stress of going to the grocery store and support people with disabilities who face mobility issues. We’re thrilled to further broaden access to food with on-demand delivery via DoorDash.”
