"Well I think this is another interesting use of the web, combining educational activities (not just the fairly simple vocab building activity, but educating folks about hunger itself - including links to the sister site poverty.com) with contributing to the greater good."
This is always good and if you no what happening around you , you can always try to help some how. People are sometimes oblivious to what is happening around them and i think this is such a great way to try to stop world hunger and it can come in handy in the classrooms thats also good. It connects to the classroom cause we always have needed a simple way to help and this provides that. This connects to the world because we shouldn't all be independent don't let other neighbors die its a bigger issue than 20 grains a question so many people starve and if a lot of people do this that many people are not starving part of the solution.
