Get admission discounts with your Vermont food stamps card!
Montshire Museum of Science – $2 per person (or $15 per family per year!)
This award-winning museum covers 100 acres and provides exhibits for all ages and interests. Learn about light, sound, sight, plants and more. An outdoor Science Park and Woodland Garden are also available.
Admission is just $2 each with a New Hampshire or Vermont EBT card, Medicaid card or free/reduced school meals letter. There is a six person limit per qualifying document, but that’s potentially $72 in savings for a family of six or more!
(Adult visitors must be named on Medicaid cards if Medicaid cards are used to qualify for the discount.)

Did you know your Vermont food stamps card can also do this?!
It’s easy to be confused about what you can and can’t buy with your Vermont food stamps benefits. However, we’ve found some interesting items that we thought couldn’t be purchased with food stamps… yet they can!
- Farmer’s Markets and community supported agriculture (CSA) programs can accept EBT. For example, Cedar Circle Farm will gladly sell you produce, seeds and seedlings – and they may help you learn more about the Farm to Family Program!
- Starbucks! EBT can be used at Starbucks locations that are located inside a grocery store.
- Subway! EBT cards may be usable at Subway locations inside gas stations as long as the sandwich isn’t toasted. This isn’t always the case, but it has been possible on occasion.
- Schwan’s Trucks also accept EBT benefits. Order online, by phone or on the app. Please note that food stamps benefits will not cover the delivery charge. Make sure you can pay the delivery charge before you order! If you can’t pay the delivery charge, you will not be allowed to keep your order.
- Sam’s Club
- Papa Murphy’s
- Dollar Tree
You can also use your Vermont food stamps benefits to buy these items:
- Hot deli food that has been packaged and refrigerated
