Got Georgia EBT? You might qualify for these, too!

 

You can also use your Georgia EBT benefits to buy these items:

  • Seeds! EBT cards can buy fruit trees and vegetable seeds for gardening.
  • Hot deli food that has been packaged and placed in the refrigerated section for easy reheating..
  • Energy Drinks! If the drink has a nutrition facts label, it’s considered a food item. Drinks with a “supplement facts” label are not eligible because the FDA considers them supplements, not food.
  • Live lobsters and other shellfish that you will eat.
  • Pumpkins that are edible and not just ornamental.
  • Birthday and other specially decorated cakes as long as the non-edible decorations do not exceed 50% of the purchase price of the cake.
  • Gift baskets! Your EBT benefits can even help you purchase gifts for holidays such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas (including pre-filled holiday stockings and tins) as long as the food value exceeds the non-food value. For example, the federal SNAP website indicates that a stuffed holiday bear holding a small box of chocolate would NOT be eligible because the value of the bear exceeds the value of the food. However, a gift basket with snack foods or candy and a small toy would be eligible because the food clearly accounts for more than 50% of the purchase price.

You can also use these two sites to find stores that accept EBT benefits:
