Help Fight Hunger

Freerice.com is a website that I used in my classroom last year that donates rice to help end world hunger! Students love answering questions on this web site. The questions on the free web site include vocabulary, art, chemistry, English, geography, language, and math. For every question the student answers correctly, the UN World Food Program will donate 10 grains of rice. This may not seem like a lot, but at the same time your students are playing the game, thousands of other people are playing it at the same time!

Hunger Facts:
  • 1 out of 6 people do not get enough food to be healthy - that is over 1 billion people on Earth.
  • 25,000 people every day die from hunger related causes
  • Every six seconds a child dies from hunger
Here is a passage from God's Word:

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' -Matthew 25:34-36
