I was just passed along a fascinating photo essay with pix of what various different families around the world eat each week. The photos are by Peter Menzel and they are hosted for you to see at the web site.

More about Menzel's book "Hungry Planet" here.

HomelessNation is a Montreal based cross-Canada organization that helps empower homeless Canadians through internet access, filmmaking, blogs and other media-based techniques.

Bon weekend et bon appetit,
