Free rice for the hungry

Think you're smart? Literate? Well-read?

Take the free rice challenge. Identify the meaning of the words provided and, thanks to sponsorship, rice gets distributed by the UN World Food Programme.

I've manage to get a vocabularly level of 45. Can you get to level 50?

You can also download an interesting game at that allows you to take the role of the UN World Food Programme representatives in a warzone. Find refugees, negotiate resources, balance a diet and deliver aid by air and land.

I managed to get to 50 - but it took a few lucky guesses and a bit of going up and down between 45 and 49 before I did it.
