About Freerice.com

Freerice is a 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.

This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.

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.

Feel free to contact us for any questions regarding the site or sponsorship opportunities. You can also find Freerice on Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you.

What else can I do to help end hunger?

Here are three things you can do to help end hunger. All are free and easy to do.

  1. To learn how to take action in your community, click here.
  2. Add your name to the One Campaign, where several million people have already joined together as one to end hunger and extreme poverty. If enough people join, dreams for a better world can be made into reality very quickly.
  3. Twenty-two countries have joined together to try to raise enough money to end world hunger completely by each contributing 0.7% (less than 1%) of national income. Some of the countries have already met this goal. Others haven't come that far yet. You can see how the countries are doing here. You can also print a letter to support your country's participation here.
