Let's equalize food

One in eight Americans receive government assistance to buy their weekly groceries. However, until recently, recipients have been unable to use their benefits to purchase groceries online.

Meaning:

  • People who rely on EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfers) can't access the convenience of online shopping

  • Grocers without an online presence are unable to reach all of their potential customers

  • Currently, fewer than 100 grocers in America can accept EBT online

Expand your services, grow your market

Since March 2020, online grocery shopping has increased exponentially. By 2025, online grocery shopping will swell to 21.5% of total U.S. grocery sales, more than doubling its current share of the overall market.
