Learning can be fun

Fight hunger with your vocabulary

Did you know that about 25,000 people die each day from hunger? And sadly, most are children.

It is our duty to help those in need. But it can be difficult knowing where to start. Well, I have a fun way for you to help fight hunger.

At FreeRice, you can play a vocabulary game. For each correct answer, 10 grains of rice are donated to the World Food Program. The rice is then distributed to those in need.

This might not sound like a lot of rice. However, the vocabulary game is fun and addictive. Your contributions will quickly add up.

Wondering where FreeRice gets the food to donate? The site is supported by advertisers. The advertising generates money to buy the rice. FreeRice is a non-profit organization. You can learn more by reading the Frequently Asked Questions.

Now, the thing I like most about FreeRice is that it’s a win-win situation. In exchange for helping the hungry, you’re helping yourself. The questions can be quite challenging, so they'll improve your word power!
