Millions of Americans collect food stamps each month as a way to afford food for their families through the SNAP program.
Some wonder if it’s possible to spend their benefits at restaurants like Denny’s.
The answer is complicated, but yes.
This can only happen at select locations for very specific people.
What criteria need to be met to use food stamps at Denny’s?
In order to use your SNAP benefits at Denny’s you need to reside in California.
You need to be eligible for the Restaurant Meals Program.
You must meet the following criteria
- Be 60 or older
- Have a disability
- Be homeless

This is the only way an EBT card can be used at a restaurant.
RMP partners with states that are approved to use this program, and then restaurants willing to participate in the program.
You need to tell your server you will be using CalFresh benefits, which is the food stamp program in California.
