The USDA recently approved Oklahoma, along with 12 other states, to join in on the pilot program.

Now, there are 36 states across the United States that have been approved.

The program allows SNAP customers to use their benefits to buy their SNAP eligible items online.

After they purchase, they can decide if they want the items delivered to their home or they can go pick it up, curbside.

Patrick Klein, the adult and family service director with the Department of Human Services in Oklahoma, said this is going to help thousands, especially their most vulnerable customers.

“They don’t have to sign a device or have close contact with anyone now,” said Klein.

Customers will be able to complete split purchases online as well.

Right now, they are in the testing phase of the program but hope to have it up and running soon for Oklahomans to start taking advantage of.
