Mealshare exists because not every youth has access to enough food, and we don’t think that’s okay. We’re a non-profit social enterprise that makes it easy for people to provide meals to youth in need. Just buy a Mealshare item at any of our partner restaurants, and you’re providing one simple, healthy meal to a youth in need. We’re adding to our team of passionate change makers.

History Lesson:

We launched in the summer of 2013 with four partner restaurants in Alberta. Since then we’ve grown to 325+ restaurants in 40+ communities. The Mealshare team is a tight-knit family that works collaboratively and efficiently to change the world. We need you to research and apply for grants to ensure that Mealshare is well-funded and able to make a huge impact!

A day in the life of a Development Genius:

You’ll work independently to source hundreds of potential grants/awards, and submit compelling applications for each of them. Duties include:

  • Researching and applying for potential grants, awards and competitions
  • Building and cultivating relationships with foundations, organizations and philanthropists
  • Reporting back to stakeholders in delightful ways to communicate the impact their support has had

What it takes:

You’re a passionate individual who has a track record of success! You’re sharp, organized and remarkably good at convincing people through your writing. We are looking for someone with 3+ years of relevant experience. Our ideal Development Genius is:

  • Happy to work independently
  • Organized and efficient
  • Hardworking with a hunger to exceed expectations
  • Goal-oriented
  • Passionate about Mealshare and our model of change
  • Honest and trustworthy
  • Dedicated and successful
  • Committed to helping others in their life and career
  • Strong with MS Office Suite

Application and Details:

This is a contract position, which will pay $17-$20 per hour (depending on experience and expertise). Your hours will depend on how much you’d like to work, and how many grants you find, but we expect it will be somewhere between 5-15 hours per week. This is a role that could grow in the future if you are interested.
