Food Donations Hunger does not take a vacation and the KMFP continues to serve all of those in need that come through our doors. Unfortunately, food donations during the summer months are always low but we are so grateful to have so many ongoing and new donors that support us in so many ways. Please continue to remember us when you go shopping and if possible pick up a few canned or boxed items.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – formerly known as the Food Stamp Program is of great assistance to many people who are struggling financially and need assistance in purchasing food. Foodbank personnel are available at different locations on a monthly basis throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties to assist persons who would like to apply. Foodbank personnel will be available in Keyport at the Community Church – Fellowship Hall (adjacent to the Food Pantry in the same building).
For further information contact the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties – (732) 918-2600 ext. 234.  If you know of someone that needs assistance in applying please provide this information to them. Spanish speaking personnel available.
