Did you know your North Dakota food stamps card could be used here?!
Several of our visitors have pointed out that North Dakota EBT cards have even more uses, too! Check out these interesting statewide benefits.
- Farmer’s Markets can also accept EBT cards. The Red River Market in Fargo also offers a doubling program for food stamps shoppers, which allows you to get $20 worth of produce for just $10. Contact your local farmers market to see if they participate in an EBT doubling program.
- Organic delivery services run by local farms can also accept EBT. Since the full-share price of a CSA can be daunting and cost-prohibitive, the fact they accept EBT allows low-income families to participate in CSA programs. Membership fees cannot be paid with EBT, but the actual produce cost can.
- Costco also accepts EBT benefits.
- Schwans Trucks also accept EBT benefits as payment for food, but the delivery fee must be paid with another payment method.

You can also use your North Dakota food stamps 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 can be purchased with EBT. 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.
