About Freerice.com

Freerice is a 100% non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme.

Freerice has two goals:

  • Provide education to everyone for free.
  • Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

Each time you answer a question right, the banner ad that you see generates enough money for the World Food Programme to buy 10 grains of rice to help reach Zero Hunger.

We are rebuilding Freerice in the second half of 2017, to fix some of the technical problems we have with this version of the site. In the meantime, Freerice is still working, and money is being generated as you play to help people in need. You can follow our Facebook page for the latest updates this fall.

Thanks for playing!

Why does my personal profile display more grains than in my group?

At the start of every session, you need to select to "play" for a chosen group. This is because many players are members of several groups, rather than just one group.

Every time that you login to Freerice, navigate to your group profile or choose a group from your list of groups: http://freerice.com/groups/my, and click "Play".

If you do not do this, totals will count towards your personal profile but will not be counted towards any particular group.
