The challenge arose on Sunday, when Booker and a user named TwitWit discussed the role the government should play in funding school meals. The conversation soon changed to food stamps.
Booker suggested they both try living on the equivalent of food stamps for a week. Later he said he would set up the rules to determine how much they can spend on food and how long the challenge would last.
The average monthly food stamp benefit was $133.26 per person in New Jersey in fiscal year 2011, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
In an interview with The Associated Press Tuesday night USA Today reports TwitWit said she is a 39-year-old married mother of two from North Carolina. She spoke on condition of anonymity.
TwitWit said she was willing to game but wants to know the ground rules first.
She thinks she and Booker should try to live on the equivalent of food stamps for a month.
