    as it provides an alternative to finding a 20 hour a week job...you can fulfill the requirements by doing some volunteer work while you look for employment.
    There are some federal housing programs that also have this type of requirement, if you are not elderly, disabled or a custodial parent, you have to work a few volunteer hours.

    This is really so pointless though, most people who receive SNAP benefits do so because they are elderly, disabled or parents of young children.  It seems that they are going out of their way to punish a very small population of very poor people, and it seems doubtful that the extra effort will result in any kind of savings anyway.
