Alabama Food Stamp Benefits to Decrease

More than 900,000 Alabamians who receive food stamps, will see a reduction in their benefits next month.

That's because extra benefits that were part of the federal stimulus program in 2009 are ending.

The State Department of Human Resources says the maximum monthly benefit for a family of four will drop $36.

The maximum monthly benefit for an individual will go down $11.
