      NEWARK, New Jersey — Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker has prepared
      for a food stamp challenge with a grocery purchase of $27.98.

      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 woman's began Sunday.

      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.
