Freerice is an educational trivia game by the United Nations World Food Programme that helps you get smarter while making a difference for people around the world. Every question you answer correctly raises 10 grains of rice for the World Food Programme (WFP) to support its work saving and changing lives around the world.

Private sponsors match the rice grain donations generated within Freerice, triggering a financial payment to WFP. This money goes into the pot of "greatest needs" to support the organization's ongoing emergencies. Since 2010, Freerice has raised more than 214 billion grains of rice for people in need. In cash equivalent, that is US $1.5 million!

Play the online game (and help provide rice) by selecting a category to begin.
