In 1996, President Bill Clinton and Congressman John Kasich co-sponsored a welfare reform law which included work-for-food requirements for welfare recipients. The provision applies to able-bodied adults ages 18 through 49 who have no children or other dependents in their home. It requires them to work, volunteer or attend education or job-training courses at least 80 hours a month to receive food aid. If they don't, their benefits are cut off after three months.  See recent welfare news
