22 Bakeries That Accept EBT/Food Stamps/SNAP

Fresh baked bread on display at a bakery that accepts EBT

While you can’t use your EBT card to purchase baked goods at bakery-cafes like Panera Bread, you can pay with 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 a SNAP-authorized retailer (as previously reported).

Below, I list the bakeries that accept EBT, as well as where not to go.

Note that, in addition to the national and regional stores on my list, you may want to check with local, independently-owned bakeries to find out whether they take EBT.

The List

We confirmed that each of the following bakeries accepts EBT by contacting their customer service departments and checking the SNAP Retailer Locator.

We’ve organized my list in order of which companies operate in the most states so that you can more easily find the bakery nearest you.
