Living On $1.50 A Day

Updated: Monday, April 29 2013, 10:10 PM EDT

Actor/Director Ben Affleck and other celebrities are living on a tight budget to raise awareness of extreme poverty in Africa.

They'll spend a total of $1.50, fifty cents a meal, to illustrate what it's like to live "below the line."

Here in Asheville, Manna Food Bank hopes the campaign draws attention to hunger closer to home.

They say that tiny budget will only buy a meager amount if rice and beans.

Others we spoke to say living on less than two dollars is impossible.
