In 2016, we put together a successful petition urging the USDA to allow recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to use their benefits online. The petition launched in June of 2016 and garnered over 300,000 signatures. In April 2019, the USDA launched the SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot. While Thrive Market is currently not on the approved list of vendors, we see this initiative as furthering our mission to make healthy living easy and affordable to everyone.
While we are waiting for the USDA to allow us to accept EBT or food stamps, we provide free Thrive Gives memberships to those in need. Learn more on how to qualify here.
