In what feels like an interesting twist, the United Nations World Food Program has release Food Force:
A major crisis has developed in the Indian Ocean, on the island of Sheylan. We're sending in a new team to step up the World Food Programme's presence there and help feed millions of hungry people.
An aircraft circles over a crisis zone. War. Drought. People are hungry. This is the virtual world of the Food Force video game.
It represents too many parts our real world, where 852 million people lack enough food to eat and World Food Programme teams deliver food aid using not only airplanes but a fleet of ships and thousands of trucks.
Play the Food Force game, learn about food aid, and help us work towards a world without hunger.
I haven't played the game and I wonder if this will help people feel compassion for the suffering. I hope so.
