Benefits are deposited into SNAP accounts monthly, and the accounts are linked to EBT cards. SNAP benefits can be used to purchase most food items, such as:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Meat
  • Dairy products
  • Breads and cereals
  • Snack foods and non-alcoholic beverages
  • Seeds and plants that produce food for the household to eat

When shopping in stores, swipe your EBT card at the card reader and enter your PIN to purchase SNAP-eligible products. An alternate payment method must be used for items that do not fall under the SNAP program.

To make an online grocery order, you’ll need a ShopRite online account. Visit or use the ShopRite mobile app and add your grocery items to your cart. During checkout, select “Pay Online” and select the “Place Order” button. Next, select “EBT SNAP” as the payment method to complete your order.
