More Iowans using food stamps

Posted:

Waterloo (KWWL) - The Iowa Department of Human Services finds the number of Iowans receiving food aid is up 15% this year.

More than 128,000 Iowa homes received food assistance last month.

The average monthly assistance is $129 per person.

Human services attributes the rise to this spring's disasters, and the economic climate.
