Drive e-commerce sales with a targeted EBT online audience

Providers helps food brands drive online sales with low-income families by providing direct access to EBT online shoppers. Brands can partner with Providers to offer targeted discounts, align with retailer promotions, and launch co-branded sales campaigns in partnership with grocery retailers.


Case Study: Building brand affinity with low-income shoppers via recipe media

Food brands have been searching for avenues to support low-income customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the spring and summer of 2020, several major brands engaged Providers to build a direct connection with low-income families impacted by the crisis.

Providers collaborated with brands to launch custom in-app campaigns that highlighted affordable sponsored recipes, cooking tips, geo-targeted coupons, and more to help families cook at home on a budget. Several brands also took the opportunity to survey Providers users on their cooking preferences to develop custom content tailored to a low-income audience.
