In some ways, the original FoodForce from the World Food program at least
mimics some of the simulation approach to teaching about food aid and
resource prioritization (with a whopping dose of WFP advertorial).  It will
be interesting to see what the folks now working on FoodForce2 for the XO
come up with.
