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.

Why does the layout of Freerice look so strange?

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, Freerice will have a very strange layout. We are currently not supporting IE6, as this version of the browser presents several unique challenges to layout and it is no longer used by the vast majority of players.

Upgrading your Internet Explorer browser to the latest version is easy to do - simply go to http://www.microsoft.com and click to download the latest version.

You may also find that Java-script is not enabled on your browser. To enable it:

  • If you are using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" in your main toolbar, select "Internet Options" select the "Advanced" tab, scroll through the options until you find the Java category and ensure the item is ticked.
  • If you are using Firefox, click on "Tools" in your main toolbar, select "Options", select the "Content" tab, and tick the option next to enable JavaScript.

If you continue to experience layout problems, please email us at WFP.Freerice[at]wfp.org
