Free Rice

I read in this post from Palabras Tendidas blog about Free Rice, a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program together with the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

You can choose a topic from a selection of subjects (Geograhy, Art, English, Spanish, etc...) and try to answer questions in a quiz. For every right answer, ten grains of rice are donated by the UN World Food Program to help fight hunger in the world.
