Food stamp benefits could be reduced next month

Rochester, NY -- More than three million New Yorkers receiving food stamp benefits can anticipate a decrease, beginning next month.

Linda Bopp, with Hunger Solutions New York, says that the SNAP program, more commonly known as food stamps, was expanded by the 2009 federal stimulus bill. That expansion is about to expire, and leaders in Congress haven't agreed on an extension.
