Free Rice!

Ok, sorry I lied. Well… no, not really. There is free rice involved but just not for YOU.

Hey don’t feel bad now. I don’t get any either and I love rice. Mmm shrimp fried rice sounds delish right now too! Mmm I know my favorite Chinese joint to get it too. Then again I could make some -ack! Right… back to the point.

Free Rice is a game to us but free rice to the hungry. Really. No joke. FUH-REE!!!

Originally Free Rice just had a vocabulary game. Where for each vocab word you got right, the website donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. Now there are even more subjects that can be played than just the English Vocabulary.

If you are sometimes bored. Or like me, have insomnia and therefore can’t get to sleep right away, I simply go to Free Rice and click away. Even if you guess wrong, nothing happens. They don’t take rice away. But the more questions you get right, the more rice gets donated and at NO CHARGE TO YOU. Plus you’re actually learning in the process. If you have a teenager who is prepping for the SATs, have them hop on this site to practice, at least in the process they’ll also be feeding the hungry while working those brain muscles.
