What Does Your Week of Groceries Look Like?

A week's worth of produce at Better Farm in October.
A week of groceries can mean a million different things to a million different people.

A popular photo series by Peter Menzel explores what a week of groceries looks like for families around the globe; from packaged, processed food in the USA to minimal food options in Mali. His photos are below; and while they're of course limiting in the sense they only show one family from one country, they provoke a lot of thoughts about what food means to different people. His project got us wondering about the diversity of food consumption internationally, but also within similar cultures. So we're asking you—what does a week of groceries look like in your house?

Send us your grocery photos at info@betterfarm.org and we'll post them in a future blog post.
