Play a Part in Solving World Hunger, Literally

FreeRice is a free online quiz game in which every correct answer you give provides 10 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program. You can sharpen your skills in various subjects such as vocabulary, foreign language, chemistry, math, and even art. At the same time, you would be donating food to people in impoverished countries. The rice is paid for by sponsors of the website; every time somebody answers a question, a sponsor banner appears at the bottom of their screen. This generates the money that is then used to purchase rice. The website also encourages people to make individual donations and provides ideas on other ways to help end world hunger.
