(WCPO/CNN) - Millions of Americans who rely on food stamps will see a change in benefits.
Starting Friday, food stamp benefits will be cut - more than 47 million people currently receive food stamps.
The average benefit per person now stands at a little over $133 a month.
That amount will be reduced.
The cuts add up to $5 billion.
Congress can halt the decision.
