What are the payment options? Are assistance programs (SNAP, EBT, HSA, FSA, etc.) accepted?

Thanks for your question!

At this time, we only accept PayPal and credit cards as methods of payment.

Because USDA requires that SNAP-authorized retailers must have at least 3 out of 4 staple food categories (vegetables or fruits; dairy products; meat, poultry, or fish; breads or cereal), we do not fit the full criterion as all of our meals are vegan and do not include meat or dairy.

Since 2009, cities and states across the U.S. have been implementing the “Double Up” SNAP program. For every $1 you spend on any SNAP/EBT eligible item, you can receive up to $10 to use towards locally grown fruits and vegetables. This program was designed to increase the availability and accessibility of fresh foods to those in communities faced with food insecurity while also supporting local farmers.

At this time, LeafSide is in the process of obtaining approval and plug-in implementation for the use of health savings accounts (HSAs) and flexible spending accounts (FSAs). Unfortunately, providers have a lengthy waitlist for obtaining this option, so we do not have a specific timeframe for when this will become available on our site. We appreciate your patience and understanding with our small business.

In the meantime, we’ve had a few LeafSiders use their primary care physician to obtain a letter of medical necessity for our meals. With this letter, they’ve provided their LeafSide invoice to their HSA/FSA provider to request reimbursement from their HSA/FSA provider.
