Photographer Mark Menjivar has traveled the U.S. for three years to photograph other people’s fridges for his project ‘You Are What You Eat.’ Nothing was added, taken out or cleaned — the photos capture the content of the fridge as is.

The result is an interesting collection what the U.S. real food basket looks like.
