Cuts to Food Stamps Begin Friday

Starting  Friday millions of families across the country may not have enough food. Food stamps are being cut because the stimulus money that boosted those benefits for the last four years ran out Thursday night.
The cuts average around $36 a month for a family of four. Food stamps - officially known as the supplemental nutritional assistance program, or "snap" - serve 47 million Americans. They lost 5 billion dollars late Thursday night.
