TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Kroger Central Division, which serves much of Indiana and Illinois, has announced it will now accept EBT payment for all online grocery orders.

Colleen Juergensen, president of Kroger Central Division said in a press release, “Thousands of Kroger shoppers place digital orders every week. Now, we are opening our digital grocery shopping experience to more people, with fresh, affordable food conveniently available through pickup or delivery. Kroger believes in being Fresh for Everyone, and this is another important way we are connecting our neighbors to the foods that will help them live healthier, thriving lives.”

For years, Kroger has accepted Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits in store. Now customers can use EBT payments to buy groceries through the Kroger app or through the website. This new payment option gives customers opportunities to access SNAP-eligible foods in the way most convenient to them.

To place online orders, customers need to create an account through the Kroger app or website. Then, add an EBT account number as a new card under “My Account” and “Wallet.” After filling the cart with SNAP-eligible items, simply select a convenient pickup or delivery time, and checkout. Once on the checkout screen, select EBT as the payment method and enter the PIN to confirm the order.
