What is Freerice?
Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by the United Nations World Food Programme with two main goals in mind:
1.       To provide education to everyone without a fee.
2.       To help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people, also cost free.

Not only can this program be used by teachers in the classroom but it is made available to students at home with access to a computer and internet. It is even now available on Twitter and Facebook.

Background Information
Freerice was founded in October 2007 and since then has helped many children with education as well as feeding millions of people since the game has launched with help from sponsors. Each time a game is played and you answer a question correctly, Freerice donates 10 grains of rice help end hunger. No further action is due on your part except to keep playing and answer the next question. You may join or create groups (such as a classroom) to track the rice that has been earned and donated.

What different subjects can you utilize on Freerice?
Freerice helps students improve their knowledge in content areas such as humanities, English, math, chemistry, geography, learning other languages, and human anatomy. It is even useful in helping one study for tests such as the ACT and SAT. Many teachers use to help enrich their students vocabulary while helping to end world hunger.
