the Buddhist monk was going on a daily almsround (or pindacara) to collect food in Nyaung U township, Myanmar. In Buddhism, alms or almsgiving is the respect given by a lay Buddhist to a Buddhist monk or nun. It is not charity as presumed by Western interpreters. It is closer to a symbolic connection to the spiritual and to show humbleness and respect in the presence of normal society.
