United Nations’ World Food Programme is trying to get kids — and adults — to see that they can help fight world hunger in just a few minutes a day. The organization recently redesigned and relaunched Freerice, its quiz game that donates the equivalent of 10 grains of rice for each right answer players give.
The multiple-choice question game is fairly straightforward, with varying levels of difficulty. Players can choose from categories like languages, literature, multiplication, anatomy, and geography. The changes to the game include new categories, with questions on climate change and nutrition. Some teachers are even using Freerice in the classroom.
The site makes money from display ads, which is then used in a variety of programs, including ones that provide school meals in South Sudan and Burundi.
Why It’s Hot
Entertainment, education, and fighting world hunger all-in-one is a winning combination for all involved.
