What people eat around the world

A family in Beijing, China showing the amount of food they purchase a week

For the first time in history there are more people living in urban places than in rural areas. With an increased demand of food from cities and a dwindling population of farmers all across the globe, the importance of providing food to everyone in this world has become more critical than ever. Right now, there are 2 Billion people in this world that live in slums. Before we plan the next great development for people to live in, we must first plan to make sure we can feed everyone in this world first.

Here is an interesting website showing the amount of food and how much their weekly budget is for food. Also, check Talib Kweli's, Eat to Live and Mos Def's, New World Water.
