Rumble: What A Family Eats In a Week Across the Globe.

Time published a summary of the photo essays titled "What the World eats". Each picture shows a family in their house, surrounded by the food they typically consume in a week.
The pictures are interesting in their contrast. Not only does it show the difference in "staple food" across the globe, cultures and classes, but it also shows the differences in variety, cost, quantity, and of course packaging !...

Some examples:

Egypt: The Ahmed family of Cairo
Food expenditure for one week: 387.85 Egyptian Pounds or $68.53
Family recipe: Okra and mutton

United States: The Revis family of North Carolina
Food expenditure for one week: $341.98
Favorite foods: spaghetti, potatoes, sesame chicken

Chad: The Aboubakar family of Breidjing Camp.
Food expenditure for one week: 685 CFA Francs or $1.23.
Favorite foods: soup with fresh sheep meat

The Time photo essay is an excerpt from the book "Hungry Planet" by Peter Menzel.
