A Week in Food

 Daddy just sent me this e-mail from a colleague of his.  This is very interesting to say the least.  It definitely gives some perspective to all of our Lenten sacrifices where food is concerned.

Quite a powerful story in pictures.
What is eaten in one week around the world. Very interesting assortment! Note the large amount of drinks in some pictures.
This is undoubtedly one of the most interesting e-mails I've ever received.
 Take a good look at the family size &
 diet of each countryand the availability & cost of what is eaten in one week .

Italy: The Manzo family of Sicily Food expenditure for one week: 214.36 Euros or $260.11

Germany: The Melander family of Bargteheide  Food expenditure for one week: 375.39 Euros or $500.07

United States: The Revis family of North Carolina (Sure hope most American
families eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and less junk food than this family.) 

Food expenditure for one week $341.98

Mexico : The Casales family of Cuernavaca   Food expenditure for one week: 1,862.78 Mexican Pesos or $189.09

Poland : The Sobczynscy family of Konstancin-Jeziorna

 Don't know about you, but right about now, I'm counting my blessings! The end
