Francisca Landaeta (R) poses for a picture next to her relatives, (L-R) Luisa Gomez, Gabriel Castillo, Kerlin Garrido and Antony Arias (top) and the food they have at their home in Caracas, Venezuela April 14, 2016. "We eat today, but we do not know what we will eat tomorrow. We are bad, I never thought it would come to this," Landaeta said. The combination of Venezuela's sky-rocketing prices and chronic product shortages have left many struggling to put regular food on their tables and maintain a balanced diet.  Amid a severe recession and dysfunctional state-run economy, poorer families say they are sometimes skipping meals and relying more on starch foods. According to one recent study, 87 percent of Venezuelans say their income is now insufficient to purchase their food needs. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "FOOD GARCIA" FOR THIS STORY.
