Did you know that you can use EBT to buy vegetable plants?

That's because the USDA, which runs SNAP EBT, supports the idea of recipients growing their own food.

So, what are some of the vegetable plants or seeds you might want to buy with SNAP EBT?

Green beans. They're super easy to grow.

Tomatoes. Find a sunny spot, and you'll end up with tons of tomatoes.

Lettuce. You'll do better starting lettuce from a plant not seeds.

Carrots. You can buy seeds online at Amazon or from Walmart.

Speaking of Amazon, you can buy live vegetable and food plants, including herbs, on the site, using SNAP EBT.
