Jon Bon Jovi has opened a paired of restaurants in New Jersey that will offer food to those that are in need and unable to pay.
The JBJ Soul Kitchen has two locations in Bon Jovi’s home state of New Jersey, one in Red Bank and the other in Toms River.
The restaurants are part of the JBJ Soul Foundation, which seeks to “break the cycle of hunger, poverty, and homelessness through developing partnerships, creating programs and providing grant funding to support innovative community benefit organizations.”
All the items on the menu have no prices.
However, those that are able to pay are asked to give a donation of $20 while those are unable to pay are simply asked to volunteer at the restaurants.
Thus far, the JBJ Soul Kitchen has served over 106,000 meals. Additionally, all of the the food is provided locally by the restaurant’s garden.
Early in the year, the JBJ Soul Kitchen provided meals to those families that were affected by the government shut down.
