Right this minute, people all over the world are eating, or shopping for food or preparing food to be eaten. It is a necessary way of life. Everyone must eat to survive.
What types of food are people eating? Many times that depends on where they live. It usually depends on which plants and animals live in the area and what methods of transportation are available. Some plants grow well in certain areas and not at all in others. There are fewer animals in the wild than in days gone by.
Today airplanes, cargo ships, and trucks can deliver food that was grown in another part of the world to anywhere. In times past, people could eat only what they grew or what they could catch. They couldn't just go to the grocery store and buy whatever was on the shelf! People are now able to taste different foods. These foods had flavors, shapes, and textures they had never experienced before.
