Food Force, the First Humanitarian Video Game

Food Force serves as a classroom tool for teaching about hunger. From the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), the world’s largest humanitarian agency, Food Force is a free educational video game telling the story of a hunger crisis on the fictitious island of Sheylan.

Comprised of 6 mini-games or “missions”, the game takes young players from an initial crisis assessment through to delivery and distribution of food aid, with each sequential mission addressing a particular aspect of this challenging process.

This site also provides teachers with resources to make their lesson plans.
