Food Fare between Cultures

In many different cultures there are very distinct eating habits. What we choose to eat is based on our beliefs, our customs.

But we all have something in common: we all eat. Yes, we all eat – at least those of us who are fortunate to live in places where food exists. Many just scrape by, and the even less fortunate die of starvation.
