Though the Food Stamp Challenge was difficult, I kept telling myself that it was only a week. Unfortunately, people on food stamps don't have an end in sight. Their options just became slimmer on Nov. 1 when increases in food stamp benefits from the stimulus bill expired. This cut amounts to 21 fewer meals per month, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. At a time when so many families are still struggling, this cut will increase hunger in America.
