(MODEL RELEASED IMAGE). Glancing up at a visitor, Fourou: the twelve-year-old daughter of Soumana Natomo's second wife, Fatoumata, takes a momentary break from the family breakfast of thin rice porridge cooked with sour milk. Like most families in their village in Mali, the Natomos eat outdoors, sitting on low stools around a communal pot in the courtyard of their house. The Natomo family of Kouakourou, Mali, is one of the thirty families featured, with a weeks' worth of food, in the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.
