Key Takeaways

  • Grubhub does not accept EBT because it only delivers prepared food.
  • EBT is accepted by grocery delivery services like Amazon Fresh and Instacart.
  • Payment alternatives on Grubhub include cash, credit/debit cards, and PayPal.
  • SNAP benefits can buy groceries online in participating states and stores.

Does Grubhub Take EBT As Payment?

Grubhub does not accept EBT as a form of payment. This is because EBT is intended for groceries, and Grubhub primarily delivers prepared food from restaurants, which does not qualify for EBT purchases.

However, Grubhub offers several other payment methods including cash, Apple Pay, Android Pay, credit or debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover), and PayPal for convenient payment options.

What Food Delivery Companies Accept EBT?

While Grubhub doesn’t take EBT as a form of payment, luckily, there are other grocery and food delivery services that do. These include:

  • Amazon Fresh: Amazon Fresh offers grocery delivery in nine U.S. states for those eligible for EBT payments.
  • Walmart Online Ordering: Allows EBT use in 49 states, with Alaska residents required to use their EBT card at pickup. Users must add their EBT card in their account payment options.
  • Instacart: Instacart provides grocery delivery services with EBT-eligible groceries in select stores across the U.S., contingent on the state’s participation in the SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot program. Stores like Aldi and Meijer are included, with EBT purchases limited to eligible items such as produce, meats, dairy, bread and cereals, snack foods, and non-alcoholic beverages.
