What the World Eats

I came across this photo essay a few weeks ago and I found it just fascinating. It features images of families from around the world sitting with their average weekly food purchases. It’s remarkable to see what serves to sustain life in some parts of the globe as they compare to others, and to what degree some people eat packaged, prepared foods while others simply have sacks of grains and piles of veggies. Even more interesting is that each family’s weekly cost is given in both their native currency and it’s USD exchange. Check out the family with the endless half-gallons of orange juice–those are some thirsty people.
