Denny’s accepts SNAP payments through Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT), but only at a few locations and with some restrictions.
According to First Quarter Finance, if you want to use your EBT at Denny’s, you must live in California, be qualified for the Restaurant Meals Program (RMP), and go to a Denny’s that is RMP-authorized.
The RMP is a state-sponsored program that allows some SNAP beneficiaries to use their benefits to purchase prepared meals at participating restaurants.
The SNAP recipient must live in a state that participates in the RMP, and all members of the household must be either:
a person who is at least 60 years old
Homelessness among the disabled
An RMP-eligible SNAP client’s spouse
Prepared meals purchased with an EBT card outside of the RMP are often not available at eateries.
Only a few counties in California, including Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz, offer EBT restaurant meals.
- In March, Residents of Michigan Will Be Eligible for Additional Food Aid.
- According to Experts, Removing Covid-era Payments Will Increase Child Poverty.
- IRS Collection Notices Are Being Halved | But Penalties and Interest Aren’t!
RMP partnerships change frequently, so visit your county’s dedicated EBT/RMP website or call your local Denny’s or benefits administration office for the most up-to-date information.
Please inform your waitress that you will be using CalFresh benefits before using an EBT at a diner-style restaurant chain.
Use your EBT card like you would a credit or debit card once you receive your bill. If you have enough money on your EBT, your benefits may be enough to cover the entire meal.
According to First Quarter Financial, if your EBT balance is insufficient, you may be able to utilize cash, credit, or debit.
