Did you know your Louisiana food stamps card
could be used here?!
Several of our visitors have pointed out that Louisiana food stamps benefits have even more uses, too! Check out these interesting statewide benefits.
- Discount food markets
- Starbucks! EBT can be used at Starbucks locations that are located inside a grocery store (such as Target).
- Farmer’s Markets and organic delivery services (CSA programs) can also accept EBT cards. Some even have fantastic dollar matching or discount programs for EBT card users! New Orleans Food Coop gives a 5% discount to EBT-using coop owners.
- Costco also accepts EBT benefits.

You might qualify for these, too!
- Free Internet
- Summer Food Service programs help feed anyone under age 18 during the summer.
- Free cell phone
- Discounted utility bills
- Subsidized child care
- Up to 75% off prescriptions
You can also use your Louisiana 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’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 food stamps 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.
