Uber Eats to accept SNAP benefits for grocery deliveries in 2024

(KXAN) — Beginning in 2024, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients will be able to purchase grocery deliveries through Uber Eats, the company announced Wednesday.

“We know that online food delivery can have a meaningful impact in reducing barriers to fresh groceries, especially for the most vulnerable–including people living in food deserts, seniors, and those facing disabilities or transportation barriers,” company officials wrote in the announcement. “Helping to improve access to quality food is incredibly important to our work at Uber and we’re proud to use Uber’s technology and extensive local delivery networks to offer SNAP recipients the ability to use their benefits to access fresh groceries conveniently from our app in 2024.”
