Research and Data Entry Specialists

If you love digging for details, using the web, articles and social media you are in a position to help us find more locations that offer free food for people in crisis. Help us reach more people by doing the most important things for our service: adding more locations.

Location research is easy yet it takes care to ensure that each location meets the criteria we are looking for: Free food and does not require that a person show documentation. To do this, you may need to call or email the locations you are researching to ensure they do not require documentation. You may find this information on their website or social media or in databases or documents being published in certain locations such as libraries, town hall sites, schools, and more. 

Once you have compiled a list of new sources, we will show you how you can import the data into our database and make it live. 

Then we will make a social media post advertising your accomplishment and you can help spread the word also!
