Apropos of our series on the broad range of young farmers in this region, a friend sent a very interesting set of photos this morning, which Google tracked down to a Time.com photo essay, from the book Hungry Planet, showing what families from around the world eat in a week and what the week’s food costs them.(Sorry I can’t include a sample photo here, you’ll have to go to the link for that.)
The range is dramatic, the differences in diet are pretty stark. Lots of beverages in some of the photos!
What would a photo essay like this just with families from our own region look like? It would show personal tastes and family habits, of course, but there are also huge differences in food budgets, and the availability of food, even here.
