Q: What is SNAP and EBT?

A: SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is a federal program designed to assist low-income individuals and families with access to nutritious food. At Community Markets, we utilize EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) cards, which function like debit cards, to make eligible food and beverage purchases.

Q: What items are NOT eligible with EBT?

A: EBT can be used for a wide range of food items at Community Markets, but it cannot be used for purchases of alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, items with Supplement Facts labels (e.g., vitamins and supplements), hot foods at the point of sale, live animals (except shellfish, fish, and pre-slaughtered animals), non-food items (such as pet food, hygiene products, cosmetics, cleaning supplies, and household items).

Q: What are EBT eligible items?

A: Community Markets offers a variety of EBT-eligible items, including fruits, vegetables, poultry, meat, fish, dairy products, cereals, breads, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and even seeds and plants that produce edible food.

Q: Can I buy non-SNAP products with cash or a debit card?

A: Yes, at Community Markets, we provide the convenience of multiple payment options on a single order. You can use cash or a debit card to purchase non-SNAP eligible products alongside your SNAP items.

Q: Do all Chief Markets locations accept SNAP/EBT?

A: Absolutely! Every Community Markets location is equipped to accept SNAP/EBT payments, ensuring that our customers have access to nutritious food choices.
