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.

Via Wall to Watch

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 ┬ávegetables. The picture from Kuwait is kind of funny, what’s up with the empty kitchen? The one from Chad is heart wrenching.
