Playing vocabulary games on Freerice has fed millions of people since its launch in 2007. More than just feeding the hungry, the game at Freerice can also benefit its players by allowing them to broaden their vocabulary, formulate better ideas, write more effective papers, emails, and business letters, as well as speak more precisely and persuasively, comprehend better, read faster, and a lot more. Besides games using English vocabulary, Freerice also offers games on different subjects such as math, science, geography, art history, foreign languages, etc.
For each answer a player gets correctly, ten grains of rice will be donated through the World Food Programme. If the previous question were answered correctly, the following question would be harder. If answered incorrectly, the following question would be easier. Some questions may be repeated because whenever a question is answered incorrectly, Freerice will repeat it a few turns later to give you a second chance to answer it.
Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme. It aims to provide free education to everyone, and to help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
The donated rice is paid for by the sponsors whose names are at the bottom of the screen after entering a correct answer in the game. Freerice does not in any way make money from the games. The website is run entirely for free and all money raised by the site goes to the UN World Food Programme to help feed the hungry.
Freerice was founded by John Breen in October 2007.
