Free Rice

Have you ever wanted to help stop world hunger and help those who are in need. Well, now you can by going to and you can play the trivia game or you can sign up and donate to people across the world who are in need. FreeRice is affiliated with the World Food Programme and is a not for profit organization. Every time a question is answered correctly ten grains of rice is donated to people in need. The World Food Programme says that 553 million people in Asia and the Pacific are hungry. They also say 227 million people in Africa, 47 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, and 16 million in developed countries are hungry. The WFP estimates 146 million children are under weight in developing countries and 17 million are born under weight annually because the mothers do to not get enough nutrition during pregnancy. The WFP also says 315,000 women die annually due to not enough nutrition and iron. One in eight people are hungry says a study the WFP performed. We can all help stop hunger by playing or donating to
