  • NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker is prepared for a food stamp challenge.

    He and one of his Twitter followers each plan to live for a week on the monetary equivalent of food stamps or less.

    The mayor’s week starts Tuesday. The North Carolina woman’s began Sunday.

    The mayor prepared for the challenge with a grocery purchase of $27.98.

    Booker tweeted a picture of a receipt of the purchases he made Saturday at a Pathmark store in neighboring Irvington. The vegetarian mayor’s grocery list included pink and black beans, corn and red delicious apples.
