A Week of Groceries in Different Countries

Hi,

One of my FB friends posted this and I was utterly fascinated by it. Peter Menzel photographed different families from all over the world with a week’s worth of groceries.

This is fascinating on so many levels. Not only do you get to see the size of typical families and how much they eat, but you also get a peek into their living rooms. The German one looks pretty legit, especially with all the seltzer water and beer.

Boy, I need to eat more fruit and  vegetables. The picture from Kuwait is kind of funny, what’s up with the empty kitchen? The one from Chad is heart wrenching.

  1. I saw this a few months back and was just blown away by it. I found the kitchens just as fascinating as the groceries — next time I complain about something in my kitchen, I’ll remember the outdoor ones here!
