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. 2015 marked thirty-two (32) 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.
The current KMFP organization is completely run by unpaid volunteers, including the Board of Trustees. There are currently thirty-five (35) volunteers, some are full time and others are part-time, (including the Board of Trustees). Our volunteers have a wealth of knowledge due to their previous or current careers (i.e. Corporate Management, Academic, Non-Profit, Retail, Ministry, Government, Health Industry, to mention a few). In various ways, all of these volunteers apply their knowledge/skills for the betterment of our organization.
