Aldi and Instacart Cooperating to Provide Service Under Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

12/21/2020

Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Program became available on December 17th at 1,000 Aldi stores across twenty-three states.  The program was trialed in late October in sixty stores in Georgia, thereafter expanding to 570 stores in five populous states.

 

Scott Patton, VP of National Customer Interaction stated, "Aldi is proud to be the first grocery retailer to accept EBT SNAP benefits as a form of payment online for Instacart delivery and also curbside pickup". As a special introduction to the program, Instacart will waive delivery fees on the first three EBT SNAP orders.

 

The program is supported by Muriel Bowser, Mayor of Washington DC who stated, "this SNAP pilot comes at a critical time in our response to the pandemic when we are focused on doing everything we can to get our community to the other side of the COVID outbreak".
