“Demand for food stamps is on the rise in Montana. Last year one out of every 12 Montanans, used food stamps to buy groceries each month. That’s more than one-third higher than who received food stamps in 2000.
‘It’s basically because our jobs on average don’t pay a lot. The goal clearly is to get people off food stamps. We’re trying to get more good-paying jobs.’ U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont.
‘We need to lend a helping hand to Montanans in need. Our goal must be developing a plan that will improve access to the food stamp program, particularly for children, the elderly, the working poor and our veterans. I think we can do that.’ – Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont. ”

Hungrr is growing. Hunger in America.
