Drop in Benefits Boosts Popularity of Food Banks

Some of Indiana's food banks and pantries are seeing more people lining up for meals in response to a drop in federal food stamp benefits.

The 2009 economic stimulus effort boosted food stamp dollars, but that extra funding ended this month.

The Agriculture Department says a family of four is now getting $36 less a month in food stamps.
