A third of the food produced in the world is wasted, including 36 million tons of food go to waste in Pakistan. And that has a huge impact on food security and our planet's health, 8% of greenhouse gas emissions coming from food waste!
Sharing Out is Pakistan's only neighbor to neighbour food sharing app, and our mission is to solve the problem of food waste in the home & local community. We do this by connecting anyone with spare food – which can be households or local businesses – with neighbours living nearby who would like it. We have planned to work with every household to make their surplus food available to their neighbors. In Rawalpindi and Islamabad, we have just started our journey, and Sharing Out's magic is spreading rapidly.
We're a proud pioneer in addressing food waste issues digitally, but did we mention the issue is huge? We are building our team as we move. And that's where you come in:
We're looking for an exceptional Community Maker to join the superstar team at Sharing Out in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

The ideal candidate would be the one with a passion for tackling food waste and who is, above all, a hunter.
