Saturday May 13: JBJ Soul Kitchen (Toms River)
Jon Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen
is a non-profit community restaurant that
serves paying and in-need customers. It offers a delicious three-course farm-to-table meal in a warm, welcoming setting and provides a place to meet neighbors. Many of the dishes are made with fresh, organic ingredients from their garden or the JBJ Soul Kitchen Farm. For the in-need customers, they can volunteer at the facility as their dining payment.
JBJ Soul Kitchen is a program of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation
. There are two locations, the other in Red Bank, where we've volunteered in the past. The Toms River location is more convenient for alumni and their families (ages 15 and older) and friends in Ocean County.
: JBJ Soul Kitchen, 1769 Hooper Ave, Toms River, NJ
- 1:30-4:30 pm: volunteering service, to include clean up work at the restaurant, lobby, and grounds.
