The number of local households receiving food stamps is gradually increasing, according to Susan Clark, director of the Galax Department of Social Services.
With the state of the economy, it's hardly surprising that the number of those seeking assistance is growing.
As of December 2009, 924 households (or 1,767 people) received food stamp assistance, which is now being called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). That's up from 854 households, or 1,664 people, at the beginning of last year.
