GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Starting Friday, April 1st, people could lose their benefits, because of new requirements.
This applies to people between 18 and 49 years old, who don't have dependents or disabilities.
Tuesday, the YWCA on Wendover Avenue held an event, to answer questions about the changes.

To keep getting food stamps, people need to work, volunteer or get job training for at least 20 hours a week or 80 hours a month.

There are three agencies in Guilford County that provide job training.

The Welfare project is one of them. Organizers also said if you receive a notice saying you're no longer going to get benefits, you can appeal it.
