Customers will be able to order SNAP/EBT-eligible grocery items on DoorDash at ALDI, Albertsons/Safeway, Meijer and 7-Eleven.
As part of its continuing work to broaden food access,DoorDashwill begin accepting SNAP/EBT payments on the platform with such food retailers as ALDI, Albertsons, Safeway, Meijer and select 7-Eleven stores. With these partnerships, more than 4,000 grocery and convenience locations across the country will soon offer SNAP/EBT payment capabilities via DoorDash for on-demand delivery of eligible grocery items.
Additionally, DoorDash will offer SNAP recipients all of the benefits of a DashPass membership — its membership program that waives delivery fees on eligible orders that meet minimum subtotals from thousands of restaurants, grocery and convenience stores nationwide —free for two months.
“The rise of on-demand grocery delivery has had a transformational impact on food access,” noted Fuad Hannon, VP of new verticals at San Francisco-based DoorDash. “This is especially true for vulnerable populations, including seniors, people living in food deserts, and those facing disability or transportation barriers. We’re proud to partner with these merchants to offer SNAP recipients access to quality groceries conveniently through our platform. Through the power of local delivery, enabling SNAP/EBT payments can make a profound impact on reducing food insecurity and connecting people to groceries and the essential items they need.”
Customers will be able to order SNAP/EBT-eligible grocery items on DoorDash at the following retailers:
ALDI: Starting in July, customers can access and purchase SNAP-eligible grocery products from more than 2,200 locations across 38 states. Products include the company’s highly sought-after ALDI Finds.
