The Free Rice Campaign is dedicated to ending hunger by providing rice to those in need through the United Nations World Food Program.
805 million people worldwide are hungry.
The world produces enough to feed the entire global population of 7 billion people, yet one third of all food produced (1.3 billion tons) is never consumed.
Hunger decreases the desire to study and socialize, making people weaker and less able to earn money.
Fluctuating food costs make it difficult for the poor to have access to food on a consistent basis.
Developing countries lack infrastructure, transportation and facilities for proper farming to occur.
Natural disasters, such as floods and drought, cause food shortages affecting those who rely on their land to survive.
Educate yourself and provide rice for free, one vocabulary word at a time.
