CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Curbside delivery at some of the neighborhood H-E-B stores has just become a little bit easier.
SNAP/EBT cards used by the Snap Food Assistance Program can now be used for curbside delivery at select H-E-B stores.
- 11100 Leopard St. - Corpus Christi
- 409 E. Kleberg - Kingsville
- 100 East Houston St. - Beeville
Corpus Christi ISD sent a letter to families about the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to buy food. The application is online.
Last month, Texas Health and Human Services announced the statewide launch of a pilot program that would allow snap recipients to purchase their groceries online for curbside pickup or delivery from Amazon and Walmart.
More than 900,000 snap households should expect to see more money on their Lonestar Card by June 12. This emergency fund is in addition to the more than $400M given to snap users in April and May.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said the extension will help Texans in need provide for their families while the state continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
