See this announcement from the Department of Transitional Assistance re: Online SNAP Purchasing:

DTA recently received approval from the USDA to join the SNAP online purchasing program. We are excited to announce that as of Friday, May 29, Massachusetts residents can use their SNAP benefits to buy food online at Amazon and Walmart. Read today’s Press Release here. DTA worked quickly with our EBT vendor to set this up. This option promotes equity and safety for our residents receiving SNAP benefits, allowing low-income households access to the same purchasing choices as other shoppers.

To help spread the word, DTA has launched a new website: The website contains a one-page flyer (English/Spanish, more languages to come), FAQ (English/Spanish), sample social media posts and more. Check it out and please share the materials!

DTA supports the expansion of this program to more retailers, increasing access for MA residence and communities. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approves all retailers. If you know of any retailers interested in joining, please refer them to the USDA’s website.
