NASHVILLE, Tenn. – More and more Tennesseans are turning to food stamps to make ends meet.
Nearly 1,186,000 Tennesseans, or more than one in six residents, currently receive some kind of food stamp assistance and the number continues to climb.
At the start of each month, the lines are always long at the Department of Human Services’ family assistance office just north of downtown.
News 2 caught up with Kathy Bruce while she waited in line on Monday.
Her husband suffered a massive heart attack two weeks ago and will be out of work for the next two months.
