Address:150 Pittstown RdPittstown, NJ 08867Map & Directions
Services: Their mission is to help those in need through a volunteer effort of planting, picking, and delivering fresh produce via a unique model that: heightens awareness of socio-economic issues, highlights the importance of local farms, and inspires volunteers across many generations and skill sets.
A few years after Chip started the garden program, he was
offered access to additional acreage. Most of this new available land was at PVO, where broccoli, cabbage, and
cauliflower were planted – both spring and fall planting in some years. Other land was offered by friends in
the area. One offered an acre
behind their house to grow potatoes, which became yet another Bethlehem
Presbyterian Church mission project. Other friends freed up an acre at their home specifically for corn, and
a local buffalo farm offered a small piece to grow melons.
In addition to the garden programs, this additional acreage
dedicated for planting totaled 7 acres in 2009. Of that acreage, just shy of 40,000 pounds of food was
produced and donated to feeding agencies all over the state of New Jersey. That’s about 120,000 servings of
delicious healthy produce, right off the farm.
These planting programs are so successful thanks mostly to
the generosity of landowners and farmers who love seeing a portion of their
property at work for the greater good. Secondly, the programs are successful due to the generosity of time of
their nearly 1,000 dedicated volunteers who are happy to help plant and harvest
the produce that comes off this land.

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.
