People Of The World And What They Eat Daily – 30 Illuminating Examples!

 

Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio have taken these magnificent pictures, which show how much people eat in the different regions of our world. The two photographers traveled far in order to create this illuminating photo series.

Moreover, Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio are actually married and they published their work in the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats”, which is surely recommendable to realize how vast the differences can be from region to region.

 

According to the UN there are “842 million people in the world do not have enough to eat” and “the vast majority of hungry people (827 million) live in developing countries, where 14.3 percent of the population is undernourished”. [1] As outlined in our post “Beautiful Protest Against War – Israeli Tear Gas Grenades Misused By Palestinian Woman To Plant Flowers” only 30 billion dollars are needed each year to stop world hunger.

Taken these statistics into account, one may think of all the food that is wasted in some countries. Somehow it is a really bitter irony that one side of the world wastes food and other starves…
