Following the success of World Food Programme's Food Force, which is designed to teach 8-13 year olds about hunger and humanitarian aid work, the organization announced the launch of a new blog related to the game that will let children talk directly to aid workers currently active in global fight against hunger. The blog, named “Joe’s blog”, which acts as a web journal and is named after one of Food Force’s main characters, serves as a central place where children can exchange ideas, as well as read first hand accounts posted by those currently working to bring food to those in need. In addition, Food Force remains as a freely downloadable serious game that lets players face realistic challenges in their goal of saving lives and bringing food to those in need on a fictitious island that has been ravaged by by drought and civil war. Food Force has been played by at least four million people since its launch by the United Nations division in April 2005, and is currently available in five languages.
