Bologna, Italy A plane circles over a crisis zone. War. Drought. People are hungry. The aircraft goes into a steep climb before launching its first airdrop of food aid. A truck struggles up a muddy, treacherous road, and rebels loom. People are anxious, waiting and food is scarce. This is the virtual world of "Food Force". Not an action film, but the first humanitarian video game about global hunger unveiled today by WFP at the International Children\'s Book Fair in Bologna, Italy.
