We got questions about whether Walgreens accepts Food Stamps or SNAP Benefits Card and we did a a post on the topic. We figured we might as well do the same for CVS Pharmacy, which is the second largest pharmacy chain in the United States after Walgreens. They have more than 7,600 stores. While Walgreen accepts Food Stamps at select stores, and you have to call to find out which one, CVS accepts them at all their stores and that is stated clearly on their website. Here it is:
Does CVS Accept EBT Card

They are not going to give you money to buy fast food or junk food.
