Online ordering options available for Clark County SNAP recipients
SPRINGFIELD, OH (April 27, 2020) — The Clark County Department of Job and Family Services has confirmed five local retail locations have stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic and now have added the SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card option for online ordering.
SNAP recipients will be able to use the online ordering service to order their food and pick up curbside or in some cases inside the store. The recipient may be able to pay outside if the retailer has the mobile point-of-sale device or the recipient may have to go inside to pay to pick up their order. These options do assist with limiting the contact with other people and having to spend a lot of time in the store shopping for the selections.
The following retailers have confirmed that they are providing this service in Clark County:
Walmart: Bechtle Avenue and Tuttle Road locations.
Kroger: Bechtle Avenue, Derr Road and East Main Street locations.
“We hope our SNAP recipients will take advantage of this great service that can help keep our families safe and healthy,” said Clark County DJFS Director Virginia Martycz. “It’s an easy and effective alternative to entering a grocery store during these difficult times.”
