Play Trivia, Have Fun Learning, and Help Feed the Hungry While You Do!
What if you could change the world and help feed the hungry while having fun learning by playing a game? You can and we’re going to tell you how.
FreeRice.com is an educational game that donates rice to the World Food Programme (WFP) every time you answer a question correctly. The game is simple to play: just choose the correct answer to a multiple-choice question about a variety of topics, such as math, science, and geography.
For every question you answer correctly, FreeRice.com donates 10 grains of rice to the WFP. The WFP is a United Nations agency that works to fight hunger and malnutrition around the world. It provides food assistance to people in need in over 80 countries.
FreeRice.com has donated over 2.4 billion grains of rice since it was launched in 2007. This is enough to feed over 1 million people for one day.
I started with the category of English vocabulary and I sailed through the first few minutes, but the words get harder and harder and the game more challenging as you play.
Did you know that caprine means goat-like? Bovine means cow-like, equine means horse-like, and porcine means pig-like, and caprine means goat-like. Meanycine means EB-like.
And they continue to get harder, for instance off the top of your head do you know what these words mean?
Anyway, out of 65 vocabulary words, I got 61 of them correct and thus 610 grains of rice were donated to those in need. So today, I did a little to help feed a hungry person somewhere in this world – and I learned some new words too.
You can choose from dozens of categories
If English vocabulary is not your forte, there are dozens of other categories to choose from. You can change categories by clicking this icon in the top-left corner of Freerice.com.

We’re going go out on a limb here and say some of these categories will challenge even the smartest among you. Besides, what could be better than learning while having fun – and helping others too?
