Bring Freerice 2.0 into Your Classroom!

There are 925 million people in the world who don’t have enough food – that means that 1 in every 7 people go to bed hungry.  And, hunger is still the #1 health risk in our world today, killing more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

So what can you do about it?  More importantly, what can you as a teacher do about it?
