Maryland SNAP Recipients can now use their EBT card to purchase groceries through Instacart

In October, Aldi and Instacart announced that they would begin accepting grocery orders for SNAP recipients through Instacart’s app.

If you receive SNAP benefits in Maryland, you can now use the service. You will need to have a debit or credit card attached to your account to pay for taxes, any non SNAP-eligible items, the delivery fee, and any driver tips.

To successfully use your EBT card, a credit or debit card must also be linked to your Instacart account to cover fees, bottle deposits in some states, taxes, delivery tips, and any other non-EBT SNAP-eligible items you may want to purchase.

In addition to Instacart, you can purchase groceries online for delivery via Walmart’s app, Amazon, and ShopRite.
