Free Rice Competition

Join the Free Rice Challenge!

Global Week 2021

22nd March - 26th March 2021


What is Free Rice?

Every right answer helps to end world hunger. 

Free Rice is a free to play, online game, where you answer a variety of questions, based on your chosen subject. For every answer you get correct, the World Food Programme (WFP) will receive 10 grains of rice (or the money equivalent) who donate it to various WFP projects across the world.

Get started today and see how many grains of rice you can donate!
