Do you have a SNAP EBT account or EBT card? There are more fast-food chains that accept EBT than you might think!
EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) allows SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) participants to pay for groceries and other items.
These electronic food stamps are used in all 50 states and are also accepted by a number of big restaurants.
If you don’t have a SNAP EBT account, you might even be eligible for one.
Either way, it’s worth knowing which fast-food restaurants accept EBT. Paying with EBT can be a last-minute lifesaver if you don’t have cash and find yourself craving something quick and easy to eat.
Plus, you might as well make the most of your SNAP eligibility, and you may even discover that your favorite fast-food chain is participating in the program.
That’s why we’ve made this list of 18 fast-food chain restaurants that accept SNAP EBT.
Below, find out which popular American restaurants participate in SNAP so you can use your EBT balance the next time you happen to visit one of the following.
18 Fast-Food Chains That Accept SNAP EBT
EBT is used in all 50 states, but it’s worth noting that SNAP benefits differ between states when it comes to eating out at restaurants. Some states do not allow hot or cooked food to be bought using EBT, so it all depends on which state you live in!
Put simply, as long as you are in a state that offers the Restaurant Meals Program (RMP), you are good to go. So far, the seven states participating in RMP include Arizona, California, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
With that in mind, let’s check out all the best fast-food chains that accept EBT.
For convenience—if you want to scroll down to see if your favorite fast-food restaurant accepts EBT, for example—we’ve listed all EBT fast-food restaurants in alphabetical order.
First up, Blimpie. Blimpie calls itself “America’s Sub Shop”, known for its sandwich menu that offers subs, paninis, wraps, and more. And, yep, Blimpie accepts EBT if you are an eligible SNAP participant.
Blimpie has over 150 locations across the USA. Not bad considering Blimpie started as a small sub shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, founded by three friends.
If you haven’t guessed, the name came from the word blimp, since the subs look like, well, blimps.
But if you have not visited Blimpie yet, the menu is pretty diverse. Whether you like classic subs, paninis, or wraps, you can choose from a range of sliced deli meats and salads as your filling – pretty much like Subway.
Hey, if you like chicken, pulled pork, and meatball subs, they have those options too.
Salads are also on the menu for the calorie-conscious, including vegetarian salads and grilled chicken caesars. And to go with your Blimpie order, you can grab cookies, chips, and drinks – again, pretty much like Subway.
Blimpie isn’t the most popular fast-food chain in America but if you are craving a fresh sub and happen to pass a Blimpie, America’s Sub Shop is worth checking out.
It’s also ideal if you are watching your weight, as Blimpie subs are typically lower in calories than, for example, grabbing a fast-food burger with fries.
If you love the Whopper, you will be glad to know that Burger King accepts EBT for eligible SNAP participants.
Needless to say, Burger King is one of the biggest hamburger fast-food restaurant chains in the world, coming just behind McDonald’s in terms of popularity.
So, anything from Burger King’s large menu can be bought using EBT. The famous “Home of the Whopper” offers everything from burgers and chicken sandwiches to wraps, salads, and desserts.
Burger King also has a breakfast menu, which is worth trying if you haven’t checked it out yet.
If you are not sure what to order, some of Burger King’s most popular—and iconic—menu items include the Whopper, Bacon King, Double Stacker King, Double Quarter Pounder King, and the Original Chicken Sandwich.
And if you are vegetarian or vegan, there are options for you, too, such as the new “Impossible Whopper” – a burger that contains no meat whatsoever.
Other vegan options at Burger King include the Single Impossible King and the Impossible Southwest Bacon Whopper.
The good thing about Burger King is that it’s, well, everywhere. It boasts more than 7000 locations in the US alone, so it’s never that hard to find a Burger King nearby no matter where you happen to be or which state you live in.
It’s also one of the most popular drive-thru restaurants in America, simply making it more quick and convenient to visit than many other fast-food chains. Just make sure not to forget your EBT card.
Did you know that Carl’s Jr has franchises across North & South America, Asia, Oceania, Europe, and Africa? 1000 of its locations are in America, so you are in good hands if you are a SNAP participant who happens to love Carl’s.
Carl’s Jr was founded in 1941 and has since grown into one of America’s most popular fast-food restaurants.
Thankfully, they accept EBT, allowing you to order Carl’s Jr staples such as the Big Hamburger, Thickburger, Super Star with Cheese, and Famous Star with Cheese.
If you have not visited a Carl’s Jr yet, burgers are not everything Carl’s Jr has to offer, however.
The menu includes breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, desserts (Carl’s Jr Chocolate Cake is a must-try), and a full range of sides and drinks to choose from.
Carl’s Jr is also a good choice for kids. Kids seem to love this fast-food restaurant more than others thanks to the Carl’s Jr StarPals menu meals – as these often come with a free toy.
Overall, Carl’s Jr is another great stop for SNAP participants. If you’ve had enough of Burger King and McDonald’s, Carl’s Jr is just another option worth checking out.
There’s a Carl’s Jr in almost every state so, as long as your state is part of the Restaurant Meals Program, you can conveniently pay using EBT.
If you love ice cream more than the average person, there is a good chance that you have visited Dairy Queen (maybe more times than you can count).
Dairy Queen, or DQ, as a lot of people call it, is the world’s best-loved fast-food ice cream chain, boasting a menu of soft-serve ice cream with every flavor and topping you can think of.
There are more than 5500 Dairy Queen stores around the world. What’s even better is that close to 4500 of these franchises can be found in America – most of which accept SNAP EBT (in RMP-participating states).
So, if you love ice cream, hitting up Dairy Queen (see also ‘17 Delicious Dairy Queen Items To Order Off Their Menu‘) at some point and paying with EBT is a no-brainer.
Dairy Queen’s “Blizzard” Treats (see also ‘The Best Dairy Queen Blizzards You Need To Try‘) are DQ’s most popular menu items, which include limited ice creams, signature ice creams, candy classics, and lots more.
You don’t have to choose straight from the menu, though; Dairy Queen ice creams come with limitless customization options so simply ask for whatever ice cream you are craving and they’ll make it.
They offer every ice cream flavor, plus sprinkles, candy – you name it.
What’s fun about DQ is it’s pretty entertaining to watch your ice cream being made, and they will even offer you the challenge to catch it (yep, they’ll throw your ice cream over the counter).
We only recommend this if you are good at catching stuff, however.
But, if you didn’t know, Dairy Queen also offers food, including burgers, sandwiches, chicken baskets, and other snacks.
This is worth knowing since you might not want to spend all your EBT on ice cream – as sweet and irresistible Dairy Queen ice creams are, of course.
Everyone has heard of Denny’s. The famous diner restaurant has over 1500 franchises in the US, loved for its wide-ranging menu that includes burgers, pancakes, classic dinners and classic breakfasts, sandwiches, crepes, salads, desserts, and more.
And, yep, it’s another restaurant chain that accepts EBT for eligible SNAP participants in states that are generous enough to offer the Restaurant Meals Program.
Haven’t visited a Denny’s before? It’s an affordable diner restaurant chain that’s perfect for large families that can never decide where to eat.
The menu has everything, in other words, so it’s the place to go to keep everyone happy and satisfied.
Our personal favorites at Denny’s Diner are the Cali Club Sandwich, Cinnamon Roll Pancake, and the All American Slam. Oh, and the Loaded Nacho Tots. Who doesn’t like nachos, right?
But, whatever your preferences are, you are sure to find something to order at Denny’s, as the menu really is that diverse – no matter whether it’s breakfast time, lunchtime, or dinner time.
Additionally, the Denny’s Kids menu offers pancakes, cheeseburgers, mac and cheese, and more, and the Family Packs are also great for families on a budget – or families in a rush!
All in all, Denny’s is yet another restaurant that you can enjoy by paying with SNAP EBT. It’s not exactly a fast-food restaurant, it has to be said, but it’s still one restaurant that is worth knowing about if you are a SNAP participant.
Love Domino’s? It might be your favorite pizza place; it might come second-best to Pizza Hut – or any other famous pizza restaurant chain.
Either way, Domino’s Pizza accepts EBT in states that offer the Restaurant Meals Program, making it worth talking about on this list.
Domino’s, which has been going since 1960, is as global as restaurants come. It has 15,000 franchises worldwide with over a third of these residing in the USA. Needless to say, there’s probably a Domino’s Pizza somewhere near you.
What’s great about Domino’s is that you can pick up, eat in the restaurant, or get your order delivered to your door.
It’s fast-food pizza at its best, with more than enough pizza bases, toppings, crusts, and more to customize your pizza the way you want it.
Domino’s slogan is “Your Pizza, Your Way”, after all.
So no matter whether you like pepperoni, chicken, or pineapple on your pizza, Domino’s has a diverse menu to satisfy most pizza lovers.
There are a host of sides to choose from as well (garlic bread, wings, nuggets, and more), plus desserts that include ice cream and cookies – if you have room after finishing off a pizza, that is.
We personally prefer Domino’s to Pizza Hut but, hey, that’s just us. Overall, no matter whether you usually order online or visit the store, it’s possible to pay at Domino’s through SNAP EBT.
El Pollo Loco
Fun fact: El Pollo Loco means “The Crazy Chicken” in Spanish.
You’ve probably seen El Pollo Loco about; it has around 500 restaurant franchises across the US, many of which have their famous slogan (and what the restaurant is best known for), “Famous Fire-Grilled Chicken”, displayed on the front.
El Pollo Loco was founded in Mexico in 1974. It has since expanded across Mexico and the USA (it has more locations in the USA, despite starting in Mexico), now the go-to favorite restaurant among flame-grilled chicken lovers and Mexican food lovers (see also ‘16 Best Mexican Chain Restaurants In America‘).
What El Pollo Loco ultimately offers is Mexican-style flame-grilled chicken.
So, if that sounds good and you have not checked out El Pollo Loco yet, it’s another restaurant chain that accepts SNAP EBT in RMP-participating American states.
It might sound like El Pollo Loco’s menu is limited, but there are more than a handful of ways you can enjoy the restaurant’s famous flame-grilled Mexican chicken.
The menu boasts tostadas, burritos, chicken bowls, salads, tacos, rice dishes, and more, plus a choice of combos if you can’t decide. There’s a kid’s menu, too, as well as a range of sides, salsas, and drinks to choose from.
Like Denny’s, El Pollo Loco isn’t technically fast food. If you are craving Mexican flame-grilled chicken, however, that shouldn’t matter.
Plus, some El Pollo Loco franchises offer drive-thru. Just don’t forget to take your EBT card if you are eligible for SNAP.
Jack In The Box
Good news if you live on the West Coast, as Jack in the Box is another fast-food chain that accepts SNAP EBT. It has more than 2000 locations across the country, however, so there’s still bound to be a Jack in the Box franchise near you.
Jack in the Box was founded in 1951 by Robert O. Peterson (the man who made fast-food restaurant drive-thrus popular), and has since grown to become one of America’s most visited fast-food chains.
Haven’t checked out Jack in the Box yet? The menu consists of burgers, chicken dishes, salads, and tacos, plus fries and various sides.
There are plenty of shakes and desserts to order, too, plus a breakfast menu if you happen to visit Jack in the Box in the morning.
We personally lean towards the Jumbo Jack Cheeseburger or the Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.
But chicken sandwiches are also available on the menu if that’s what you prefer, including Jack in the Box’s famous Cluck Sandwich and Jack’s Spicy Chicken.
We also recommend the Late Night menu at Jack in the Box, which offers combos of burgers, tacos, and fries – perfect for those evenings when you are feeling a little hungrier than usual.
Overall, it’s another fast-food restaurant chain worth checking out if you have an EBT account and happen to live near a Jack in the Box.
Again, just make sure to check that your local Jack in the Box is in a state offering the Restaurant Meals Program.
Jamba Juice has over 700 locations in the USA. It’s the go-to place for juice lovers, offering smoothies and shakes made from every fruit, vegetable, and ingredient you can imagine. Conveniently, Jamba Juice also accepts SNAP EBT.
What’s great about Jamba Juice is that it offers dessert-style smoothies and healthy smoothies – depending on what you prefer.
So no matter whether you are craving something detoxifying and energizing or something that is sweeter than sweet, Jamba Juice has a smoothie choice for you.
Smoothies and shakes at Jamba Juice can also be customized with Jamba Juice “Boosts”, offering even more ways to enjoy your favorite flavors.
These Boosts include vitamin and mineral boosts, protein boosts, fruit boosts, and yogurt boosts. If you keep to a vegan diet, there is also a good choice of plant-based smoothies.
Examples of some of the most popular Jamba Juice smoothies include Strawberries Wild, Mega Mango, Apple ‘n Greens, Orange Dream Machine, Peanut Butter Chocolate Love, Peanut Butter and Banana Protein, and Matcha Green Tea Blast.
Jamba Juice smoothies come in a range of sizes, too, so you can simply order what size you want depending on how thirsty you are.
Some of Jamba Juice’s smoothies are high in sugar and calories, it has to be said, but there’s still a ton of healthier options for those watching their weight.
So, aside from fast food, Jamba Juice is another chain that you can enjoy using EBT as your payment method. You might as well, since there are not many things better than a sweet and refreshing smoothie on a hot day.
Love KFC? Then you will be happy to know that KFC accepts SNAP EBT.
The home of the Colonel’s famous Kentucky Fried Chicken is one of the biggest and most successful fast-food chains in the world, with around 4000 locations across all 50 states.
So, if you live in a state that is participating in the Restaurant Meals Program, KFC is yet another place where you can take advantage of your SNAP benefits.
Needless to say, there’s guaranteed to be a KFC franchise—probably several—near wherever you live.
We seriously doubt you haven’t been to a KFC before, but for those who don’t know everything that’s on KFC’s menu, the popular fast-food chain offers fried chicken buckets, fried chicken burgers, boneless fried chicken, hot wings, chicken wraps, and even a choice of vegan options.
Yep, that’s right, KFC has vegan food. Its vegan menu includes several vegan burgers that are made from Quorn (a popular chicken alternative), which are, of course, flavored with KFC’s secret 11 herbs and spices.
KFC is also known for its sides, snacks, and treats that are offered with most of its finger-lickin’-good meal choices, including fries, gravy, beans, southern rice, sweetcorn, and sundaes – to name just a few.
In any case, KFC accepts EBT from eligible SNAP participants so it’s worth knowing about if you have always loved tucking into KFC chicken.
Remember that KFC also now offers vegan options, so you are not excluded if you avoid meat in your diet.
If you scrolled down to look for McDonald’s—the world’s biggest and, of course, most popular fast-food restaurant chain—then, yep, you’ll be glad to know that McDonald’s accepts SNAP EBT.
McDonald’s boasts more than 38,000 locations around the globe, with 14,000 of these located in the US.
It goes without saying that you probably don’t have to drive—or walk—far to find a McDonald’s near where you live.
McDonald’s is everywhere, and one of the most convenient, fastest places to grab something to eat when you are craving something quick, tasty, and filling.
McDonald’s menu is the most diverse it’s ever been since the first McDonald’s opened in 1940 (in San Bernardino, CA, if you are wondering), so the famous fast-food chain offers more than just hamburgers and fries.
This includes wraps, salads, and fruit, plus vegan options for those avoiding meat.
What also makes McDonald’s so popular is its breakfast menu, which boasts the iconic McMuffin and McGriddle.
So if you are someone who regularly stops at McDonald’s in the morning before work, it’s possible to use your EBT account to shoulder the cost.
Ultimately, it’s great news that McDonald’s is part of the Restaurant Meals Program, simply because McDonald’s is so popular and accessible.
McDonald’s, alongside Burger King—the other fast-food giant—makes it easier than ever to grab cheap fast-food on the go if you are an eligible SNAP participant.
Papa Murphy’s (see also ‘Top 15 Papa Murphy’s Foods‘) sets itself apart from Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza, and other fast-food pizza chains due to the fact that it’s a take-and-bake pizzeria.
If you have never been to a Papa Murphy’s, take-and-bake simply involves ordering your pizza then taking it home to cook (bake) yourself.
It might sound inconvenient (when compared to ordering from Pizza Hut and Domino’s) but the fact is Papa Murphy’s pizzas are pretty darn cheap.
And for people who don’t think supermarket-bought frozen pizzas are all that great, Papa Murphy’s simply offers far better taste and quality.
Plus, at Papa Murphy’s, you can customize your pizza just how you like it.
But no matter whether you are a regular at Papa Murphy’s or you are yet to check out what their take-and-bake service is all about, Papa Murphy’s is another fast-food chain where you can pay using SNAP EBT – online or in-store.
It’s worth adding that Papa Murphy’s doesn’t just deal in pizza.
The menu offers salads and sides to-go alongside your pizza, as well as drinks and desserts, such as s’mores bars, cinnamon wheels, and (our personal favorite) chocolate chip cookie dough.
Papa Murphy’s has over 1200 locations—most of them being in the USA—so there’s sure to be a Papa Murphy’s franchise near you.
As long as it’s in a state that is offering the Restaurant Meals Program, simply order online or head over and pay for your pizza using your EBT account.
If you are not a fan of Domino’s or Papa Murphy’s, then your preferred choice for fast-food pizza might be Pizza Hut.
This is great news, too, since Pizza Hut has nearly 4000 locations in the US across all 50 states – not bad considering it all started in 1958.
It’s the most popular fast-food pizza franchise, in other words, and it accepts SNAP EBT in states participating in the Restaurant Meals Program.
So, if you are craving pizza in one of these states, there’s bound to be a Pizza Hut near you that you can order from using EBT as payment.
Like Domino’s, Pizza Hut’s menu doesn’t just offer pizza. There are a host of sides (garlic bread, nachos, onion rings, nuggets, fries, wings), salad options, and desserts to choose from, in addition to Pizza Hut’s many famous dips (see also ‘14 Pizza Hut Crusts For You To Try‘).
If you do just want pizza, however, Pizza Hut offers every pizza base, crust, sauce, cheese, and topping you can think of.
These are customizable, too, with different sizes to choose from depending on how hungry you are (or if you have to, unfortunately, share with someone else).
Pizza Hut is convenient, filling, and accessible, so it’s good to know that you can use SNAP EBT to pay for your order. Just use your EBT account to order Pizza Hut online or pay in-store using your EBT card.
Surprisingly, Popeyes has more than 3705 locations in America. The fast-food franchise is well-known for its fried chicken, which comes in all kinds of sought-after Popeyes menu items: chicken sandwiches, wings, tenders, nuggets, and more.
If you haven’t been to Popeyes before, it’s kind of like KFC—or Chick-fil-A, actually—but with stronger, spicier flavored chicken.
It’s why we like Popeyes, in fact, with some of our favorites being the Spicy Chicken Sandwich and, of course, Popeyes Signature Chicken Box (we order the 24 piece).
It’s not all fried chicken at Popeyes, though. Grab a salad or dessert on your EBT card, or even just a refreshing beverage. Popeyes offers a good choice of kids’ meals, too, which include mac and cheese, as well as 4-piece and 6-piece nuggets.
Something you might not know if you are not a Popeyes regular is that Popeyes also offers seafood. That’s right – use your EBT account to order Hushpuppy Shrimp or a Popcorn Shrimp Meal.
We haven’t tried Popeyes’ seafood, but it can’t be that bad considering their chicken is pretty tasty.
All in all, Popeyes is super accessible and offers great value for its meals, so it’s another fast-food chain restaurant that is worth knowing about if you are eligible for SNAP benefits or already have an EBT account.
Like all the other restaurants on this list, however, just make sure you are in a state participating in the Restaurant Meals Program (RMP) before whipping out your EBT card at the counter.
And if you’re looking for gluten-free options at Popeyes, you might need to double-check their menu as their primary focus is on fried chicken and seafood, which typically involve gluten-containing ingredients in the batter.
Rally’s—yep, the restaurant with the checkered racing flag branding—is another fast-food restaurant chain where you can pay using your EBT account.
It’s not as easy to find as the other options on this list—since Rally’s only has around 300 locations across the US—but it’s still worth knowing about if you are a SNAP participant.
Rally’s is known for its drive-thru-only restaurants. There’s nothing with this concept; after all, it’s quick and convenient when all you need is a hot meal to-go.
Rally’s offers a wide selection of fast food favorites, from burgers and hot dogs to wings, fries, sides, and slushies.
If you’ve never pulled up at Rally’s before, you can order different burgers, wings, and hot dogs on their own, or grab one of the above options as a combo (with fries and a beverage).
It’s simple to order Rally’s, as a result, and nice and quick when you are in a rush.
As a bonus, Rally’s is also super cheap, which can make it a more attractive option (than some of the other fast-food restaurants on this list) if you are trying to budget your EBT balance.
The main downside is that Rally’s isn’t as accessible across the US, so it all depends on whether you live near a Rally’s or happen to drive by one in a state offering the Restaurant Meals Program.
Here’s a fun fact: Subway has just as many locations in the USA as McDonald’s – over 24,500 franchises, to be more exact. In other words, Subway can be found pretty much anywhere, and it accepts SNAP EBT.
This is something you’ll be happy to know if you love visiting Subway and live in a state that’s participating in the Restaurant Meals Program.
Subway offers fast-food subs that are made to order, making it a quick and easy place to eat for those with SNAP benefits.
There are a ton of customization options at Subway, from bread choice, sliced meat condiments, dressings, salads, and seasonings.
Simply have your favorite sub made in front of you or order a ready-made classic sub straight from the menu.
WIth your preferred sub, you can add chips, cookies, or a drink – or all three, depending on how hungry you are feeling. A bonus is that there are many options at Subway that are vegetarian and vegan-friendly, as well as gluten-free.
Hey, if you prefer wraps or salads, Subway offers those, too. You can also eat in-store or grab your order to-go.
Overall, Subway is convenient and highly accessible – and perfect for those who prefer fresh customizable subs over burgers.
And for people with strict diets or dietary needs, Subway is also one of the better fast-food options in the US for EBT account holders.
That’s right, Taco Bell also accepts SNAP EBT if you are a fan of fast-food tacos.
The Mexican-inspired fast-food restaurant chain started in 1962 and now has more than 7000 locations in the US alone – so it’s another convenient place to grab a quick bite to eat using your SNAP benefits.
If you haven’t been to Taco Bell yet, it also offers burritos and a few other Mexican-inspired specialties, such as quesadillas.
These come with a range of fillings to satisfy any preference, including black beans, grilled chicken, and seasoned beef with cheese and other salad ingredients.
So, Taco Bell is also ideal if you are vegetarian or vegan.
In addition, they even offer a nice choice of sides to order with your taco, burrito, or quesadilla—or enjoy on their own—such as fries, seasoned rice, and, of course, nachos, plus desserts that include cinnamon twists and churros with dip.
It goes without saying that Taco Bell is one America’s most popular fast-food chains, so SNAP participants won’t have much difficulty finding a Taco Bell franchise close by.
Many Taco Bell franchises also offer drive-thru, making this fast-food chain just as convenient as it is accessible across the country.
Of course, you’ll need to make sure your state is part of the Restaurant Meals Program but, like McDonald’s, Burger King, and KFC, Taco Bell is another fast-food chain that is easily found in pretty much every state.
Last but not least: Wendy’s (see also ‘The Best Wendy’s Salads – What’s In Them?‘). Wendy’s is the world’s third-largest hamburger fast food chain in the world, which has more than 6500 restaurant locations in the US alone.
It’s one of America’s fast food chains that has made a mark in the industry. There is a good chance you have visited Wendy’s before, but something you might not have known until now is that it accepts SNAP EBT.
Wendy’s main menu offers burgers and chicken sandwiches, with some of their fan favorites being the Wendy’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Wendy’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Dave’s Single, and, of course, the Baconator.
In addition, Wendy’s offers an awesome breakfast menu, which includes various breakfast sandwiches (the Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Croissant is worth ordering if you have not tried it yet) and combos that provide a sandwich served with breakfast potatoes and your choice of drink.
Aside from its main menu, however, Wendy’s offers fresh-made salads, coffees, and veggie options for vegetarians and vegans.
So, overall, there is a lot to choose from if you haven’t been to a Wendy’s yet, despite the fast-food chain mainly being known for its burgers and chicken sandwiches.
In most states, Wendy’s is as easy to find as McDonald’s, Burger King, or Taco Bell. It’s super popular—and for good reason—so it’s worth noting down as yet another fast-food chain that you can eat at using your SNAP benefits.
And there you have it: 18 fast-food chain restaurants that accept SNAP EBT. Now that you know which fast-food restaurants accept EBT, you can head out and take better advantage of your SNAP eligibility.
Just don’t forget that SNAP benefits are different depending on the state.
Some states don’t allow hot or cooked food (restaurant food, in other words) to be paid for using EBT, so you will ultimately need to make sure your state offers the Restaurant Meals Program (RMP).
States that currently offer RMP include Arizona, California, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
And if you don’t have a SNAP EBT account, it’s definitely worth checking whether you might be eligible. Aside from using it to purchase fast food at participating restaurants, EBT can also be used to buy food and other grocery items.
To find out if you are eligible for SNAP, contact your local SNAP office or visit your state agency’s website.
