In April 2015, during a discussion on class disparity, malnutrition and hunger, university students Huzaifa Ahmed, Musa Amir and Qasim Javed came up with a simple idea: they would feed the underprivileged and malnourished by collecting food that would normally go to waste and delivering it to those who could not afford a meal.

Within a short span of time, ‘Rizq’ was born — and despite its founders being bogged down by academic pressures, the group wants to play its part to rid Pakistan “of the nuisances of hunger and malnutrition.”
