Games of Food

Games of Food

Games of Food is increasing public awareness around balanced nutrition and a healthy lifestyle through the use of Escape games.

Escape games provide an opportunity to share educational messages in an enjoyable way. In such games, groups of 3 to 8 players are locked in a room while they search for clues and solve puzzles in order to escape the room within a limited time. Currently, there are thousands of Escape games worldwide, and their popularity keeps growing. 

The games being developed are communicating information about smart food choices, exposing participants to new and interesting information in a way that will increase overall knowledge and reduce common misconceptions related to food.
