Full Answer

EBT cards carry multiple types of government assistance accounts. For instance, many cards have both cash assistance and SNAP benefits. Cash assistance is allowed to be processed by restaurants; SNAP benefits are not. Cash assistance can be used on many goods and services other than food, so restaurants are a minor part of eligible establishments that may accept EBT.
