"What if just knowing what a word meant could help feed hungry people around the world? Well, at FreeRice, it does... the totals have grown exponentially."-The Washington Post

Update!!! The amount donated for each correct answer was increased from 10 grains of rice to 20 grains on 28th November!!! :D And they have an "Option" tab now! You can now set it so that FreeRice will remember your vocabulary level and the amount youve donated whenever you leave the site!:)

Reminder that the level of difficulty adjusts with how many vcabulary words you miss… until you find a good level for yourself.

The ads at the bottom pay for the rice donated to the United Nations.

Join the fun and help feed the world’s hungry!
