Food Force

Gamifi-ed Score:
Food force is an online game designed to raise awareness of hunger. Food force puts players on the front lines of hunger. Players are put in charge of their own aid agencies, fighting hunger around the globe as they deliver food, respond to emergencies and manage their resources. Players access the game through Facebook. They must interact with each other in order to get ahead, which they can also do by buying crops, equipment, and other virtual goods. Not only does this game raise awareness of world hunger, but all money spent by players goes to fund school meals for children in the real world.
