(Missouri Net) Some Missouri college students struggle to make ends meet while they are going to school, participating in activities, working, and taking care of their family.
Missouri Family Support Division Director Kim Evans says there are five government benefits every college student should know about. One is food stamps.
Other programs include Medicaid healthcare, childcare grants, cash assistance, as well help with electric and water bills.
