Free Rice -- SAT Word Builder Site

For each answer you get right, we donate 20 grains of rice through UN World Food Program to help end hunger. Please visit Free Rice at:
www.freerice.comWhile not an SAT prep site, it can be excellent preparation for the verbal part of the SAT. It was started by a father whose son was studying for the SAT. It allows one to build his (or her) vocabulary while donating rice to help end world hunger. And if students take the time to look up words they don't know at a site like, they can study word origins and roots and further build their vocabulary skills.

FreeRice is a sister site of Our partners are the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and the United Nations World Food Program.
FreeRice has two goals:
  1. Provide education to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.
