To improve our health, we need to make healthy food more accessible and affordable for everyone. What surrounds us shapes our opportunity to be healthy and our lives are saturated with unhealthy food. And in many of our neighbourhoods there’s a drought of healthy options.

InGAME and Nesta have identified the possible value of applying video game engine technology and game design techniques to develop virtual environments that help us better understand how our surroundings shape our access to healthy and more affordable food options.
