3.Islam Expo, Olympia, London 2008
American photographer Peter Menzel and writer Faith D’Aluisio have travelled the world documenting that most basic of human behaviours—what we eat. Their project, “Hungry Planet,” depicts everything that an average family consumes in a given week—and what it costs. The pair released their book “Hungry Planet: What the World Eats” in 2005, showcasing meals in 24 countries.

As the main feature in order to raise awareness and increase aid donations two installations were created to show what a family in the UK and a family in Chad spent on a weekly shopping…

Britain: The Bainton family of Cllingbourne Ducis spend £155 on their weekly food shop. They list their favourite foods as avocado, prawn cocktail and chocolate fudge cake with cream.

Chad, North Africa: The Aboubakar family from Darfur, Sudan, spend £37 a week on food to feed six people
