About Forage

Forage builds payment technology to increase online access to government benefits.

Every year, the US government distributes over a $1 trillion worth of benefits through specialized payment networks. We want to move that spend online through a unified API.

Our first product offering helps low-income Americans buy online groceries. 42M Americans rely on their EBT cards (formerly known as ”food stamps”) to buy groceries, and our technology helps them purchase online groceries. Specifically, we sell software solutions to online grocery retailers that help them accept EBT cards at checkout. Our payments API and team of EBT experts provide the easiest path for them to access 42 million shoppers and $120B of food purchases.
