SNAP and WIC Participants: Fresh Produce and Grocery Online Order and Pick-Up
Online Grocery Ordering and Fee-Free Pickup Available for SNAP Recipients at Walmart
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) EBT cards can be used to purchase SNAP-eligible foods at Walmart Grocery Pickup. See this link for details. Customers can order online, then select EBT Card as the payment method when checking out (minimum $30 purchase for pickup). When picking up the food, the Walmart associate will have the customer swipe his or her EBT card to pay for SNAP-eligible groceries. All items not SNAP-eligible will need to be charged to another credit/debit card or with cash. Please note: never give your EBT card Personal Identification Number (PIN) to anyone, either in person or over the phone. Walmart does not currently accept WIC for grocery pickup.

SNAP recipients are eligible to pick up $20 bags of fruit and vegetables using just $10 in SNAP benefits each Saturday between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Boulder County Fairgrounds – participants must sign up in advance using the Boulder County Farmers Markets’ online form, and must do so by 5 p.m. the Wednesday before the Saturday pickup date. A Boulder County Farmers Market representative will swipe the SNAP EBT card when the food bag is picked up.
WIC families can receive one box per market day by using a valid eWIC card when the food bag is picked up. Again, online ordering by 5 p.m. the Wednesday before pickup is required.
