Today on Your Call: What is it like to live on food stamps?
On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about who is living on food stamps and how they are making ends meet. Over 46 million Americans receive food stamps, which allocates an average of $4 per day. The number of people relying on food stamp programs has risen with the recession. So how does the system work? Can you stay healthy on $4 a day? Join us at 10 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re on food stamps, how are you meeting your needs? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.
