Pretty neat way to help out the less fortunate. I just played for awhile and "donated" about 1300 grains of rice. A common question is this:

Q: If FreeRice has the rice to give, why not give it all away right now?

A: FreeRice is not sitting on a pile of rice―you are earning it 20 grains at a time. Here is how it works. When you play the game, sponsor banners appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these banners is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people.

Note: 1900 or so grains of rice will feed one person for a whole day!!

Yeah, a few of my English teachers at school have taken entire classes where they just have kids do this for 45 minutes. It's really cool :)

I donated 2000 grains, but I could only get to level 34.

A lot of those words I knew from The Simpsons.
