Best Answer

A poor Roman sometimes did not even a source of water if their house. Mostly they would live in apartments and couldn't cook because their house was made out of wood and was worried about fire. They sometimes bought hot food in bakeries or some other stores. Luckily, emperors such as Augustus gave free food to the Romans.
