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 is my total in group incorrect?

Only the totals viewed on your registered profile and below the "ricebowl" while playing are real time. Totals viewed on group profiles and elsewhere on the site are tallied every 24 hours. This is to ensure that the system is not overloaded.

As Freerice is located at the United Nations World Food Programme headquarters in Rome, Italy, the time zone is UTC +1.
