What the World Eats

Here are a few photos from what appears to be an excellent book: Hungry Planet by Faith D'Aluisio and photographer Peter Menzel. The first photo is of a Japanese family that eats sashimi, fruit, cake, and potato chips as a typical meal. Their weekly food bill from the grocery store? The equivilant of $317 American dollars.

This is the Aboubakar family of the African country Chad. They usually eat soup with fresh sheep meat, which cost $1.23 per week.
