A photo essay at Time illustrates what families around the world buy for food each week and how much they spend. Obviously some cultures are living lower on the food chain than I am. The contrast just in terms of number of people in the family groups is interesting and I also find it interesting to see the difference in the amounts of food and amounts of processed foods. It's from the book Hungry Planet.
This concept reminds me of another book we had around here for years that showed families from different cultures photographed in front of their homes with their belongings displayed around them. I can't remember the name of that book, but I thought it was fascinating.
