It’s the latest move by a major retailer to give low-income shoppers more options for using food stamps in the modern era of online shopping. Walmart, one of the world’s largest retailers, began piloting the use of food stamps for online grocery pickup service in 2017 in a few locations.

Separately, Walmart, Amazon, and ShopRite are offering shoppers in the New York area the option of making online purchases with food stamps and having them delivered.
