You can use your Rhode Island food stamps card to buy these items!
- You can buy seeds, plants and fruit trees with EBT funds.
- Look for hot deli food that has been packaged and placed in the refrigerated section for easy reheating. You can buy it on food stamps that way!
- Check the labels on Energy Drinks! Anything with a “nutrition facts” label is considered food. A “supplement facts” label means it is not covered.
- You can also splurge and buy some live lobsters and other shellfish.
- EBT benefits can buy edible (not just decorative) pumpkins, as well.
- You can buy a decorated birthday (or other celebratory) cake from the bakery as long as the non-edible decorations do not exceed 50% of the total purchase price.
- Did you know you can even buy gift baskets? Your EBT benefits can even help you purchase gifts for holidays, including pre-filled holiday stockings and tins, as long as the food value exceeds the non-food value. Check out the description on the federal SNAP website for more information.
