Does walgreens take food stamps

Walgreens is the second-largest drugstore behind CVS.  Their stores specialize in prescription filling, health and wellness products, health information, and photo services. Since its opening, its pharmacy store chains have focused on helping Americans lead healthier and happier lives by being their first choice of pharmacy, well-being, and beauty.

As part of their mission, the store also doubles as a grocery store selling a selection of general merchandise and food products such as fresh and frozen packaged groceries. With over 9,722 Walgreens stores throughout the US, you are likely to find a Walgreens location in your area.

But why would you want to go grocery shopping at a drugstore like Walgreens, where there’s only a limited choice of food items?

There’s a limited choice of grocery items that you can purchase in a drugstore compared to a retailer and grocery store. Though, occasions arise when you find it worth grabbing a few food items at Walgreens, such as:

  • Photos: Purchasing a photo gift for your loved one at Walgreens.
  • No-choice: No major grocery store in your neighborhood
  • Prescriptions: Get a prescription filled and pick a few groceries at the same time.

Does Walgreens take EBT?


Walgreens accepts EBT as a payment method at some of its stores. Not all Walgreens locations take EBT cards, and you need to contact your local drugstore to determine whether they take them.

Again, Walgreens doesn’t participate in the USDA’s EBT pilot program. The program is meant to add EBT as an online payment method in all the states so that SNAP recipients can purchase groceries online. Even in Walgreens locations that accept EBT for in-store purchases, you can’t order grocery or prescription delivery or pickups at with an EBT card.
