GOP backers argued the measure would help more people find jobs.
To that end, the bill denies SNAP benefits to adults, ages 18-50, who are not disabled, raising children, enrolled in training, or working at least 20 hours per week.
In Florida, that means over 400,000 could lose food assistance, according to 2011 figures compiled by the Center on Budget and Policy Policies.
The work requirement is troublesome in Florida where high unemployment plagues the state even four years after the recession officially ended.
Unemployment even reached 12.5 percent in 2010 in Miami-Dade, a metro area where nearly one in four families fell below the poverty line in 2012, reports the Miami Herald.
