What People Eat Around The World


Ever wondered how you rank with the rest of the world in the amount of money you spend on food in a week?

This very interesting project was done by photographer 
Peter Menzel. From the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio.

Some great pictures along with the amount of cash each family spends in feeding themselves for a week all around the world.
