Mission Statement

Rice Bowls: Our Mission

To provide food for the body and spirit of orphans in the name of Christ.

To do so through orphanages around the world that are intentional in seeking for each child to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and then in discipling each child to live lives that will be a joy and delight to the Lord.


Rice Bowls are your way to impact the global orphan crisis. As the number of vulnerable children continues to rise as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, your organization can respond in a tangible way.

Rice Bowls are essentially small plastic piggy banks in the shape of a full bowl of rice. They are provided to your organization free of charge, along with information for your Rice Bowls campaign. Since rice is a dietary stable for much of the world, this design reminds participants of at risk children around the world that are in need of your partnership.

Any organization - church, school, business, or community group - can distribute these bowls to their members. Then, members fill the bowls with loose change. Once they are returned to you and the money has been counted, funds are sent Rice Bowls where they are distributed to our international network of loving, Christian orphanages.

Rice Bowls is a simple, yet extremely effective, way to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children. Since 1980, Rice Bowls have raised tens of millions of dollars to provide food around the world. Today, your spare change can change the life of a child.

Order entry, distribution, and some additional duties for Rice Bowls are made possible by donation. This allows us to give more of the funds received directly to our Orphanage Partners, maximizing your impact on the international orphan crisis. Please see our financial accountability section for additional stewardship information.

Rice Bowls is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, incorporated in 1985.

Would you recommend Rice Bowls?

by Alice W. (October 20, 2008)
Rice Bowls provides help and support for the hungry. Working with RB gives personal satisfaction as well. The contact response was quick; the directions were easily understood; and the project itself is very easy. The rice bowls came quickly and are a very visible reminder to put in your spare change. I look forward to continuing to work for and with this group.
