Website Combines Learning and Charity

On the website, FreeRice.com, I was pleasantly greeted by a profound concept — combining learning and charity. For every question that you answer and get correct, 10 grains of rice are donated to fight world hunger. The rice is distributed by the UN World Food Programme to areas around the world.

Play Freerice and feed the hungry

The questions begin with basic vocabulary, and the level of difficulty increases from there. You are also able to change subjects, selecting from Math, Geography, Language, English, Chemistry, and Humanities.

By signing up and creating a login, you can create a ‘Group’ and invite other members to join that group. If each student was able to create an account, you could create a Classroom Group.

For classroom or home use, the site could provide a foundation for not only subject area practice, but also a lesson or discussion on world hunger and ways to help.
