Food stamps cut starts Friday

Posted: Updated:

Millions of Americans who rely on food stamps will see a change in benefits.

Starting tomorrow, food stamp benefits will be cut.

More than 47-million people currently receive food stamps.

The average benefit per person now stands at a little over $133 a month. That amount will be reduced.

The cuts add up to five-billion dollars. Congress can halt the decision.
