Frank Doyle sits with bags of food that were donated to him at the Emergency Assistance Program at the Chicago Catholic Charities in Chicago, November 1, 2013. One of every seven Americans will take a hit on Friday when a $5 billion cut in food stamps, the first across-the-board reduction in the history of the decades-old federal program, takes effect. The Chicago Catholic Charities' Emergency Assistance Program expects an increase in the numbers of those seeking their help due to the cuts in food stamps.
