37 Bakeries That Accept EBT/Food Stamps/SNAP

While you can’t use your EBT card to purchase baked goods at bakery-cafes like Panera Bread or restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory, you can use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits at many bakeries, bakery outlets, and grocery store bakery departments. Bakery items like bread, cookies, and cake are EBT-eligible as long as the store is an authorized SNAP retailer.

Below, we list the bakeries that accept EBT (formerly known as food stamps). Note that, in addition to the national and regional stores on our list, you may want to check with local, independently-owned bakeries to find out whether they take EBT.

Bakeries That Accept EBT/Food Stamps

We confirmed that each of the following bakeries accepts EBT by contacting their customer service departments and checking the SNAP Retailer Locator. We organized our list in order of which companies operate in the most states so that you can find the bakery nearest you; use Ctrl+F (or Command+F on Mac) to search for your state’s abbreviation. We’ve also included the other payment options each store accepts, so you can be prepared if you’re only using your SNAP benefits for a portion of your order.
