RIZQ ATTENDED THE INTERNATIONAL FOOD BANKING LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE 2019 – one step closer to ending food wastage and eliminating hunger
Rizq – the only people powered movement united to end hunger in Pakistan – is proud to announce that the cofounders of Rizq were invited to a globally prestigious Conference, The Food Banking Leadership Institute 2019 (FBLI) from 25th to 29th March in London, England. Organized by The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN), with more than 150 food bankers attending the conference from 53 countries, Rizq became the first ever representation at the forum from Pakistan.
Rizq on its own has served more than 2 Million meals in a total of 45 cities within Pakistan since its inception only four years ago. Holding the belief of eternal growth and development, we are proud to have had the opportunity to learn from globally exceptional models that international food banks are built upon, which aim to reduce food wastage.
Rizq hopes to build a permanent association with GFN in the future by implementing an operational model that would cater to the culturally diverse needs of Pakistan, and also bond Rizq globally to the cause of eradicating hunger in the world. FBLI was an important learning experience, which Rizq hopes to use to the benefit of minimizing food wastage and eliminating starvation; one meal at a time
