How much food does the average family have in Venezuela?

As you probably know already Venezuela is collapsing in a pretty dramatic way. The situation has been critical for years now but people are now running out of food.

This Business Insider article illustrates the situation well, ‘We want out of this agony’: What it’s like to eat in a country that’s on the verge of collapse”.

One of the more telling materials in it is the series of photos showing how much food typical families in Venezuela have left.

"Now eating is a luxury, before we could earn some money and buy clothes or something, now everything goes on food," Yaneidy Guzman said.

"We eat today, but we do not know what we will eat tomorrow," Francisca Landaeta said. "We are bad — I never thought it would come to this."

"We have about 15 days eating bread with cheese or arepa with cheese," Lender Perez said. "We are eating worse than before, because we can't find food and those we can find we can't afford."

"I have to leave the house at 5 a.m., facing the risk of being killed, to stand in line all day and only buy two or three products," Jhonny Mendez said.

Lesson of the day folks: you can never store enough water and food. Also, know when to bug out of the country entirely.
