100 billion grains of rice collected through online game

FreeRice Game

Did you know that testing your Italian and French vocabulary and general knowledge can help feed a hungry child?

The concept is simple: for every right answer, players earn 10 grains of rice that are donated by WFP partners.

Patrick Maigua asked WFP's Gaelle Sevenier about FreeRice.
