  • Oh lord, this was my biggest question when I first got my EBT card. I live in NC, but it's probably the same everywhere.

    Here, you can buy ANYTHING except something that you could eat in the store, like a rotisserie chicken or doughnuts or a deli sandwich. You CAN buy frozen foods, soda, candy, any kind of meat or fish, baking items like flour and sugar, pretty much anything in the grocery store. I think you might be able to buy baby food (NOT formula). You could call your case workers and ask them about that one.

    You CAN'T buy paper goods, pet food, and like I said before, deli items that come ready to eat.

    I hope that helps =] It's really confusing at first.
