Sorry, I didn't mean to dupe you. You are not going to get free rice. Instead, you will be giving grains of rice if you play an online game called "Free Rice."

There are eight (8) subjects to choose from: Humanities, English, Math,Chemistry, Language Learning, Geography, Sciences and Test Preparation. After clicking on the challenge of your choice, you just need to answer the questions and every answer you get right, Freerice donates 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. You can also invite friends to help them spread the word.

This is what 10 grains of rice look like.
You can fill the plate of one hungry person from a poor country by simply playing a game.  

I checked out the website. You know, in case this was just some scam. It turns out that Freerice is  a non-profit website owned by the United Nations World Food Programme and it has two goals:
  • Provide education to everyone for free 
  • Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.  
And if you're feeling a bit more generous, you can also partner with them by placing ads on their website. You will need about US$5,000 worth to spend on ads.

It's a good cause that doesn't require much from you. So, go and play that game now!
