Does HelloFresh Accept Food Stamps? Explained

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 think of HelloFresh as an extra grocery store, and most customers don’t think of EBT when they think of high-end groceries (Electronic Benefits Transfer).

SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, benefits were once called “food stamps.” Now, they come in the form of EBT cards that look like debit or credit cards but only work at certain stores and for certain items.

Does HelloFresh Take EBT?

Representatives for customer service said that HelloFresh does not accept EBT. Even though HelloFresh’s on-site garden centers sell a small number of SNAP-approved items, like seeds and plants, it does not accept EBT cards or SNAP benefits.

We talked to a corporate representative from HelloFresh as well as employees from HelloFresh stores in multiple states to confirm this information.

SNAP Retailer Eligibility

EBT cards work like debit cards, but you can only use them to buy certain things from certain stores.

Retailers can only accept EBT cards if they sell a certain amount of staple foods, such as fruits, dairy products, meats, vegetables, bread, cereals, or bread products, each year.

HelloFresh sells things that SNAP will pay for, but not basic foods. HelloFresh can’t be a SNAP retailer because it doesn’t sell a wide range of food items that people need to eat.
