UNDATED (WHTC) -- It’s November 1st and that means recipients of Food Assistance Program benefits, known nationally as the SNAP program, will see a decrease in benefits.  The benefits were raised in April 2009 by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, to help people affected by the recession.  Michigan’s almost 1.8 million participants will have to get by with a bit less.  A family of four will see about a 5 percent cut in their benefits, from $668 to $632.  The amount of benefits can be checked by calling 888-678-8914.
