Does HelloFresh Accept Food Stamps in 2022? Explained

However, Top Box Foods seems to be the only meal delivery service that accepts EBT at the moment, according to, while its top competitors, Hello Fresh and Blue Apron don’t accept EBT as a payment method.

HelloFresh is a publicly-traded meal kit company based in Berlin, Germany. Founded in November 2011 by Dominik Richter, Thomas Griesel, and Jessica Nilsson in Berlin, Germany, it is the largest meal-kit provider in the United States. The retailer also operates in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Denmark, Sweden, and Western Europe (including the UK, Luxembourg, Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and Italy).

Most people consider HelloFresh an extra supermarket, and most patrons don’t associate upscale groceries with EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer).

Once referred to as “food stamps,” government benefits for food (SNAP or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits) now come in the form of EBT cards that look similar to a debit card or credit card but only work at certain retailers for certain items.

We answer everything you want to know about whether HelloFresh takes EBT cards.

Does HelloFresh Take EBT?

HelloFresh does not accept EBT, customer assistance representatives declared. While HelloFresh sells a small number of SNAP-approved items at its on-site garden centers like seeds and plants, it does not accept EBT cards or SNAP benefits.

We confirmed this information with a corporate representative for HelloFresh as well as with associates from HelloFresh stores in multiple states.

SNAP Retailer Eligibility

EBT cards work like debit cards, except you can only use them to buy a specific list of items from approved dealers.

Retailers are only qualified to accept EBT cards if their goods or annual sales include a certain amount of staple foods, including fruits, dairy products, meats, vegetables, bread, or cereals.

HelloFresh sells SNAP-approved items but not staple foods. Since HelloFresh does not sell a wide range of staple food items, it is not eligible to become a SNAP retailer.

For other places where you can use your EBT card, see our list of grocery stores that accept EBT.
