More than 220,000 low-income Idahoans will see less money for food at the end of this month, Boise State Public Radio reports, as stimulus funds added to the national food stamp program in 2009 expire. Come Nov. 1, Idahoans who receive aid from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will see about a 5 percent reduction in benefits, according to the state Department of Health & Welfare. The maximum benefit for a single person will fall from $200 a month to about $189; click here for BSPR’s full report.
