Services: Mission The Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry, Inc. serves Seniors, Women, Infants, Children, Veterans, Singles, unemployed/under-employed, Disabled and an ever increasing Spanish population. They have seen a significant growth in their clientele. In 1983 the pantry served 24 families and today they serve on average 100 families a month and this number continues to grow due to their country?s economics and several other factors. (i.e. rise in health care). Thru hard work and frugal management, the Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry has survived and grown. Their objective is to tailor a program that will feed and educate their clientele in proper diet, nutrition and how to best utilize the food supply that they distribute monthly. They are currently working with the county, town and numerous donors to move to larger quarters to satisfy the needs of a constantly enlarging population. The new facility, anticipated hiring of staff personnel and providing evening and Saturday hours will allow us to accommodate the needs of their current and future clientele. To cope with their ever changing clientele they must utilize outside sources and develop innovative plans to continue their efforts and to prepare for the future. They envision the proposed program(s) being sustained via grants, donations, fundraisers and other contributions. Today, the Churches of the Ministerium, the surrounding towns in the bayshore area, businesses, civic organizations, their neighbors and friends are donating their time, money and efforts to help us realize their goal.

Services: To end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island. Island Harvest was created in 1992 by one woman with a cooler, a station wagon, and a strong desire to help people in need. Linda Breitstone, their founder, was infuriated that food from a local convenience store was being thrown away at the end of the day – with a soup kitchen down the street. In response, she established Island Harvest and their mission, “to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island.” Their staff and volunteers collect surplus food - perfectly good food that would otherwise go to waste - from hundreds of supermarkets, delis, caterers, hotels, wholesalers, and distributors. Then, they deliver it, free of charge, to a network of 570 soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and other places where those who need it can get it, all across Long Island.
Since their inception in 1992, Island Harvest has delivered 55 million pounds of food, supplementing more than 42 million meals.
In support of their mission to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island, they are actively involved in educational and hunger awareness programs to inform the public about the insidious but often unrecognized problem of hunger here, in one of the wealthiest regions of the country, and how individuals, businesses, and schools can make a difference.
