Food Stamp Cuts Begin Friday

WASHINGTON (October 31, 2013) More than 47 million Americans who receive food stamp assistance will get less starting Friday.

A temporary benefit from the 2009 economic stimulus that boosted food stamp dollars will no longer be available effective Nov. 1.

The U.S. Agriculture Department says that means a family of four will receive $36 less a month in food stamps.
