05242019CM0220EAST ST. LOUIS – State Senator Christopher Belt announced that SNAP recipients can purchase food from grocery stores who choose to participate in the EBT Online program. 

Giving SNAP recipients the option to order online reduces the spread of COVID-19 and keeps families safe,” Belt (D-Centreville) said. I applaud our state’s leaders who made it possible for our SNAP recipients to continue to feed their families in a more resourceful way. This was a vital response to the impact COVID-19 has had on low-incomes families.

Governor JB Pritzker, the Illinois Department of Health, and other state officials created the statewide plan for 1.8 million SNAP recipients and was approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This plan gives SNAP recipients the option to enter their Personal Identification Number to order groceries online. 

Once the program launches Walmart and Amazon have agreed to accept online orders. Any additional grocery retailers who are local and want to join the EBT Online or find more information can visit here

All SNAP recipients with Link cards in Illinois will be able to participate and will be alerted when they can use their card to make food orders online. The online option will begin on June 2.
