Twelve posters show families—in their homes with a week's worth of food displayed around them—in Bhutan, Chad, China, Ecuador, Germany, Guatemala, India, Japan, Kuwait, Mali, Mexico, and the United States.

The curriculum guide includes critical thinking questions, writing prompts, activities, and reading strategies to lead students through the process of visual analysis. By examining the photographs, as well as the country facts (life expectancy, obesity rate) and family information (food sources, cooking methods) provided on each 17″w x 21h” poster, students can draw inferences, compare and contrast, and make generalizations about our “hungry planet.” The related hardback supplies more country statistics and an essay about the lives and eating habits of each family, along with brilliant full-color photographs. A related DVD has an exclusive interview complemented by rare footage and photographs Menzel and his partner, Faith D’ Aluisio, in which they share their unique perspectives on health, sustainability, world cultures, globalization, and journalism that matters.
