What The World Eats?


I re-visited The Nobel Peace Museum in Oslo this December, where it housed a special exhibition regarding the world food issues. There i learned that the food that we eat everyday, that we taste delicately everyday, actually come from a very complicated chain of demands and supplies.

The problem regarding food issues today is that there is significant distribution problem. There are parts of the world that are getting heavier, dealing with obesity, and the other parts that are getting skinnier, struggling in famine.

The gallery below depicts pictures of families from around the world showing what they eat for an entire week and the cost they spend to afford these foods. Can you find the family that spends less than USD5 per week to feed the entire family? And the family that spends the most?
