Read history and you will learn that sometimes they did not have even a piece of bread.

1/5 of bounty after the victory in battle is not for him, it is for the Muslim bank to be distributed accordingly on the army "it says 1/5 for you and the believers" (those who fought with him the battles) his part was distributed to the poor and the widows and families of the martyrs, who died during the war

Khalife Abu Bakr and Othoman were only rich from trading, and they spend every penny they had on the cause of Islam.
