What the World Eats

March 30th, 2008 by Dave · No Comments

Time Magazine has a slideshow showing photos of 15 families alongside a week’s supply of food. Each pictures is accompanied by information about the country in which it was taken, the amount of money that the family typically spends on food per week, and a favorite recipe of two. The images are taken from the book Hungry Planet.

Either the book or the slideshow could be used as part of speaking or writing activities on issues such as food, health and wealth. For example, students could look through the pictures to find the one that most resembles their own family, and contrast it with some of the other photos.
