Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Where You Can Play And Learn While Feeding The Hungry

What if there was a website that had oodles of educational games you could play and all the while you'd be helping to feed the hungry?

Welcome to, a site run by the United Nations World Food Programme. As you play vocabulary games and others involving subjects like math, science, geography, art history, foreign languages and more, you're earning food for those in need as Freerice sponsors donate 10 grains of rice for every correct answer you enter.

That doesn't sound like a lot, right? Yet thanks to people around the world playing on this site, millions of people in developing countries have been fed. Donations go to countries that need it most and are often ones that don't make news headlines, yet are still places where hunger runs rampant.

Worried that you might not be smart enough to get the answers correct? No a problem!

If you get an answer wrong, Freerice repeats the same question another time which gives you an opportunity to get it right.

And Freerice has a custom database that contains questions at varying levels of difficulty to challenge beginners and experts alike. It automatically adjusts to your level; when you get an incorrect answer, you move to an easier level and when you get three questions in a row right, you progress to a harder level. All the while, you're having fun and learning!

The site is completely non-profit with all monies raised going to the UN World Food Programme to help feed the hungry. Sponsors make all payments to the WFP directly.

For more information, visit and for more on the World Food Programme, go to Have fun, feed the hungry. It's a no-brainer!
