Soul Kitchen is a program of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. The restaurant provides gourmet-quality meals while enabling diners to volunteer on community projects in return without the stigma of visiting a soup kitchen. Paying customers are encouraged to leave whatever they want in the envelopes on each table, where the menus never list a price.
From their website:
At Soul Kitchen the main ingredient is Love, with a large helping of you. Our chefs prepare our healthy, delicious meals with the freshest ingredients, some grown in our own organic garden. At the JBJ Soul Kitchen all are treated with cheerfulness, kindness, and respect.
Introduce yourself to the person seated beside you or across the table. Stay awhile and stay informed of all the ways Soul Kitchen is dedicated to eliminating hunger, building relationships, celebrating community action and unity, promoting sustainability, and extending encouragement and opportunity to those in need.
Way to go Jon… this is a wonderful thing to do.

You are doing amazing work there Jon. If you are still having performers during meal times, I would like to donate some time to do that for your organization. I’m a self-contained solo artist I’ve been playing for 66 years. I also played a lot of places in Monmouth and Ocean County if you’re interested please get in touch with me. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from one of your managers.
