Game on! Food Force is back

Food Force is back! You’re in charge of the world’s biggest aid agency. Start playing. Start saving lives!

Food Force is an application on Facebook. This is the second version of Food Force, following the 2005 original, a video game which simulated an emergency operation on a fictitious island.
Players must interact with each other in order to get ahead, which they can also do by buying crops, equipment and other virtual goods. Money spent by players goes to fund WFP school meals projects in the real world. These projects provide daily meals to 20 million children every year, helping to keep them in school while providing them with the energy they need to learn.
