    Data Entry for Adelante's Desert Harvest Food Rescue
    Albuquerque, NM

    We are looking for individuals that are comfortable working on a computer and have great attention to detail.

    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.
