San Francisco, California (June 24th, 2024)Forage, the mission driven payments company, and DoorDash, the largest food delivery platform in the United States, today announced a partnership to scale SNAP/EBT acceptance on the DoorDash app. Since launching support for SNAP/EBT payments in 2023, over 1.1 million consumers have added their SNAP/EBT cards to DoorDash.

Forage’s partnership with DoorDash aims to accelerate the acceptance of SNAP across the platform, broadening access to food for the 42 million people receiving SNAP benefits, 17 million of whom live in food deserts, and millions more who are on disability, are elderly, and/or are full-time workers and caretakers for their families.

“Our partnership with Forage supports our commitment to increasing access to food,” said Faud Hannon, VP of New Verticals. “Growing the acceptance of SNAP/EBT across the DoorDash app can help families meet childcare and work obligations, relieve seniors of the potential stress of going to the grocery store, and support people with disabilities who face mobility issues by allowing them to access nutritious food efficiently and affordably with same-day delivery.”

Forage's seamless integration, enhanced reliability, and dedicated SNAP experts accelerate the USDA authorization process for DoorDash merchants, reducing the time it takes for them to start accepting SNAP/EBT on the app. Through this partnership, DoorDash merchants will be able to deliver food directly to homes in underserved communities , and enable valued customers to leverage critical government benefits to feed their families.

“Since launching SNAP/EBT as a payment method, over 1 in 6 SNAP deliveries on DoorDash have been made to consumers living in food deserts,” said Ofek Lavian, co-founder and CEO of Forage. “This collaboration is at the heart of Forage’s mission, and we’re extremely proud to play a role in removing as many barriers as possible when it comes to increasing access to food for low-income Americans."
