Retailer is Only Convenience Store in the State to Offer Benefit to Idahoans

Meridian, IDAHO – Jacksons Food Stores Inc. (Jacksons) and ExtraMile by Jacksons now accept Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) payments for orders made through Instacart.

“We launched our partnership with Instacart in 2021 and are proud to expand our services to be even more accessible to our community,” said Cory Jackson, President of Jacksons Food Stores. “We recognize there are several reasons our customers may not be able to physically shop in our stores. Now, our customers have greater access to get what they need — eggs, milk, our freshly made sandwiches — delivered to their doorstep.”

Jacksons is currently the only convenience retailer offering EBT SNAP as a payments option for Instacart delivery in the state of Idaho.

"At Instacart we are on a mission to create a world where everyone has access to nutritious food,” said Sarah Mastrorocco, Vice President and General Manager of Instacart Health. “By bolstering our partnership with Jacksons, we can better provide same-day access to essential groceries for Idahoans who may be facing food access challenges.”

Programs like SNAP help lift tens of millions of Americans out of poverty. Shoppers can easily add their EBT SNAP card as a form of payment by creating a profile using Instacart’s website or mobile app. Eligible items will be identified with an EBT label and include items such as pantry staples, fresh fruit, non-alcoholic beverages, and more. Availability varies by store location. For more information about EBT SNAP on Instacart, visit
