You know, it really pays to check out facts yourself....

From a Powerpoint at cisphila.org:

Volunteer or perform community service for              26 hours per month


This is Good Newz of course, although it does partially eliminate the need for my creative solutions to this problem.  :(

Don't forget, this was specifically a Pennsylvania website I was reference, YMMV in other states.... Also, 26 hours is not arbitrary; it is the maximum SNAP benefit for an individual divided by the minimum wage.

The other interesting thing to note is that non-profits who wish to participate must sign a Community Service Agreement with state of Pennsylvania.  Something to keep in mind if SUN ever needs indentured labor.
