ROCKVILLE, MD - FEB 04: Christopher Barclay is the President of the MOCO Board of Education. He used his fingers to count by hand (the probable tally) as he glanced at his chosen items (in the hand cart at right) to see if he was on budget. He found the bags of pre-packaged salad to be fairly expensive and didn't keep all that he had initially selected. Members of the Montgomery County Council as well as local activists and members the the Montgomery County Board of Education took part in a shopping venture to see if they could live on $5.00 a day worth of food. They had a $25.00 limit (5-day supply) as part of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the new name for food stamps). It was an effort to raise poverty awareness in an otherwise affluent county. Photo by Michael S. Williamson/The Washington Post via Getty Images
