Data Entry for Adelante's Desert Harvest Food Rescue. Training will be provided. We are looking for individuals that are comfortable working on a computer and have great attention to detail. We receive hundreds of donation receipts monthly from recipients that have received food from our program. This information is input into Salesforce (a CRM) which creates reporting that is a crucial fundraising tool.
A little more about the program: Desert Harvest was started in 2001 to address two needs -- to alleviate hunger in central New Mexico and to provide volunteer opportunities for people with disabilities.
Desert Harvest fights hunger in an incredibly cost-effective way, by making use of an existing but under-utilized food source: surplus food from restaurants, hotels, schools, and supermarkets that would otherwise be thrown away. At just 4 cents per meal, the program is considered one of the most efficient food recovery programs in the nation! The donated food gets delivered to 12 area agencies that provide meals to people in need.
Currently, over 66 restaurants, grocers, hotels, food distributors, schools, and caterers donate their over-run food to Desert Harvest recipient agencies. Without Adelante's Desert Harvest program, most of that food would have ended up in landfills instead of feeding people in need.
