 What is the history of FreeRice?

FreeRice was founded in October 2007 by John Breen. In March 2009 Mr. Breen donated the site to the UN World Food Program. In making the donation, Mr. Breen expressed his hopes that FreeRice will be able to grow over the coming years, helping to feed and educate as many people as possible throughout the world.

Who pays for the donated rice?

The rice is paid for by the banners you see at the bottom of your screen when you enter a correct answer. The banners are monitored to ensure that no inappropriate content is displayed such as tobacco and gambling. If you see something inappropriate, please report it immediately to freerice.rep@wfp.org. Include a description of the banner and where you're located. For information about how you or your company can be involved with FreeRice, send an email to freerice.rep@wfp.org

FreeRice is not sitting on a pile of rice. You are earning it 10 grains at a time. Here is how it works: When you play the game, banners appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these banners is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people. 10 grains x 1000's of players = a difference to millions!!!
 
Do I really make a difference by playing FreeRice?

The rice you donate makes a huge difference to the person who receives it. According to the United Nations, a child dies every 10 seconds from hunger related causes.  Though 10 grains of rice may seem like a small amount, it is important to remember that while you are playing, so are thousands of other people at the same time. It is everyone together that makes the difference. Thanks to you, FreeRice has generated enough rice to feed millions of people since it started in October 2007.
