Free Rice

FreeRice is a website that allows you to answer questions about Art, Chemistry, English, Geography, Language Learning and Math. For each answer you get right, FreeRice donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. Careful, this is addictive!

FreeRice has two goals:

  1. Provide education to everyone for free.
  2. 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.

Help end world hunger
Here is what a teacher has to say about

“A teacher of fourth and fifth graders on the Yurok Indian reservation in Klamath, CA, . . . emailed the WFP. ‘My students absolutely LOVE the FreeRice site. Almost daily they earn several thousand grains of rice!’ she wrote. ‘You cannot imagine the joy in my heart when I look out and see 25 kids doing vocabulary work and enjoying it.’”
