Thanks so much for doing this. So much great info. I wish there was more benefits available closer to Lafourche or Terrebonne parishes. Also, do you know of any you pick- strawberry farms in Louisiana that accept ebt?

What's the name of the store in New Orleans that takes EBT for clothing?

Chloe Skupnick

Saturday 8th of September 2018

Hi Angie! It looks like there were a few stores in NOLA that accepted EBT for clothing. Unfortunately, the stores were not doing it legally. Since the federal government stepped in, it looks like many of them have stopped- or, at least, stopped advertising it. If you are in need of clothing, I would definitely try local food banks, churches and even smaller thrift shops in your area. They might be able to provide you with clothes for free so you can use your SNAP benefits for food so you don't have to go hungry :)
