Celebrating Black History Month, Valentines and President's Day
The Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry (KMFP) is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization and as such we do the best we can to assist those that come to us for assistance from all walks of life. We have been in existence since 1983 and are solely staffed by volunteers. We offer food and so much more, including guidance to the many available social programs. 2017 marked thirty-four (34) years of being in operation.
We are currently serving twenty-seven (27) communities. A few of the communities are outside the area we would normally serve but due to Hurricane Sandy or other specific circumstances families were/are referred to our organization by Social Services, Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties and other government/qualified private agencies. 

Regular Food Donations - are always welcomed. If you wish to make a donation please contact Natalie Lawson - Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM on (732) 888-1986. Due to our limited freezer space if you would like to donate turkeys, hams, etc. we would ask that you please call first to ensure we have room to store it. 

Bayshore Lunch Program - Open to All. This program operates out of Community Church (next to pantry building). Lunches are available Monday through Friday (check the calendar for start times as they vary by day. 
Fufill of Monmouth & Ocean Counties Services - Open to All, Every other Tuesday throughout the month at Community Church Fellowship Hall next to pantry building. Call to confirm the dates. (732) 918-2600 ext. 234. Foodbank representatives will provide assistance and guidance to anyone in need with the various programs available. See also: USDA Food and Nutrition web site.
I would also like to take this opportunity to publicly say Thank You! to all our great KMFP Volunteers for their time, dedication and commitment to our organization throughout the year.
I am sure that those who know some or all of our volunteers will agree that we would not be able to operate the way we do without each one of them. 
Wishing evyone the very best in 2018 and always,

Isaiah G. Cooper
