Oklahoma's food stamp program gets federal grant

The number of Oklahomans on food stamps is at an all time high and Wednesday, Tulsa’s program got a much needed boost from the federal government.

The Oklahoma Department of Human Services along with the Community Action Project of Tulsa received an $800,000 grant.

The money from Department of Agriculture was presented Wednesday morning. Howard Hendrick with DHS: "During the month of June we had a little over 14,000 Oklahomans on food stamps. That is an all time high. We have never had this many people on food stamps in the history of the state."

The federal dollars will be used primarily for training programs.
