Blog entry Friday Freericers: Feed a child, feed a dream

14 October 2011

Freericers, every day you play Freerice, you fight hunger worldwide. However, this Sunday is a particularly important day: October 16 is World Food Day!

Every year we pause on this day to consider how access to food at the right time can build a future for a child, how food prices are affecting the poorest, and how hundreds of millions of people will go to bed hungry on this day.

So this Friday, to honor World Food Day, meet some of the children we’re helping through school meals, and help feed their dreams. They will make you smile, guaranteed!

Freerice is maintained by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme, the world's largest humanitarian organisation fighting hunger worldwide. To find out more go to WFP.org

I think we should make more subjects so more people will raise more rice

Thank you to all for your dreams, and helping to feed these children's dreams! @Thatandacupofcoffee it takes 19,000 grains to feed one adult for one day.

I'm only twelve too, and I just go one Freerice when I'm bored or waiting for a game to load. I'm getting super fast with the multiplication tables, not that I really needed any practice.

How many grains of rice constitute a meal? Or how many feed a person for a day? Trying to set some realistic goals....

Good to hear and see the children talking about their hopes and ambitions. Let us hope they'll have the opportunities to realise these.

Anyone else having a lot of problems with the website? I have not been able to select a group, browse groups, answer questions to raise rice, and it logs me out every other time I click. D:
