ABSTRACT
The article explains how the FreeRice.com program of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) works. Through advertising companies, this program aims to support vocabulary learning and reducing hunger by giving free rice. FreeRice donations come from the advertisers whose names are featured on the bottom of the screen during the vocab test. There would be 20 grains for every correct answer since November 29, 2008. It is reported that the site is generating 150 million grains of rice per day. WFP's food ration is based on the country or region and the eating habits of the people being fed.
