Before UFC 184, Ronda has hosted five Free Rice Contests before each one of her fight. With your help, she helped donated over 158 million grains of rice to the World Food Programme which was enough to feed 46,707 people.
One question that we receive a lot is “How do you know how many people can be fed with the rice that is donated? Well, that’s a great question! Since one bowl of rice is about 3,400 grains and comes out to about 3 cups of cooked rice, that was enough to feed a hungry person one meal.
With all of Ronda’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram followers were talking about this and thinking that it would be possible to donate up to a million grains of rice a day. Someone said, well that’s only enough to feed less than 300 people a day, that won’t matter. Ronda’s answer was,
As the sixth Free Rice Contest was about, we set a goal of 60,000,000 grains of rice which would feed 17,647 people. We ended up doubling our goal and donated 120,132,470 million grains of rice which will feed 35,333 people!
If you add together the total amount of rice donated from all six of Ronda’s Free Rice Contests, the numbers start to become REALLY impressive. Since the inception of Ronda Rousey’s Free Rice, the total amount of rice donated is 278 million grains which is enough to feed 81,764 people. Maybe it’s time we start thinking about trying for the Guiness Book of World Records!
Ronda would like to thank all of the people who made this possible by proving some amazing prizes from Reebok, Monster Products, and Roots of Fight.

*Please Note: Throughout the contest we have disqualified several winners who did not play the game fairly. For example, if you earned 1 million grains of rice in 24 hours we can verify that you used a program to automatically answer questions for you which is against the rules. In order to keep the contest fair, all of these people have been disqualified.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Monster Products, Reebok, and Roots of Fight for their generous contributions to Ronda Rousey’s UFC 184 Free Rice Contest. They have been kind enough to provide some of the AMAZING prizes for those who participated.
