A report by The Blaze indicates that food stamp usage by military families has sharply increased since President Obama came into office. In 2013, roughly $104 million was used at military commissaries in 2013, up from $31 million in 2008.

Roughly $104 million worth of food stamps were redeemed at military commissaries in 2013, according to the latest data from the Defense Commissary Agency.

Military families used food stamps to purchase milk, cheese, meat and bread at the military grocers, CNN Money reported.

“I’m amazed, but there’s a very real need,” said Thomas Greer, spokesman for Operation Homefront, a group dedicated to assisting soldiers in financial straits.

Food stamp participation in the U.S. military saw a sharp increase in 2008, during the worldwide financial meltdown, and it has risen every year since.
