SNAP Recipients Across Illinois Can Now Buy Groceries Online

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) has confirmed the state is planning to allow 1.8 million SNAP recipients to buy their food from participating grocery retailers on the web. The plan has gained approval from the federal government. This new purchasing option will start on June 2, 2020. Every Link customer will be notified when they can use their card to buy food on the internet. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) gave their approval to IDHS’ SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Online implementation plan. This plan provides all SNAP customers the aptitude to enter their Personal Identification Number (PIN) to buy their groceries on the internet.
