Georgia seeing huge decrease in food stamp use

Source: AJC.com

Eric Grant is a disabled Air Force vet. The fighting in Iraq – mortar shelling, breathing the smoke from burn pits – left him with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder and post traumatic stress disorder.

Food stamps help him and his family get through some rough times. But he’s among many Georgians who’ve been able to drop that government assistance. Georgia is seeing a huge decrease in the number of people receiving food stamps, due in large part to the improving economy.

But there’s also a brewing national debate on whether some people still on food stamps are taking advantage of the system.
