At Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen, you can pay it forward or pay with your time


The Union Beach one has been closed for 2nd time.

Thanks to a certain megastar from the Garden State, no one needs to go hungry if they live near Red Bank or Toms River, New Jersey. And soon, the same will be true in Newark.

JBJ Soul Kitchen, a community restaurant and program created by the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, was designed to ensure that everyone has access to a nutritious and delicious hot meal. There are two locations now, with a third set to open Jan. 23 on the campus of Rutgers-Newark University in Newark.

Unlike your standard restaurant, the JBJ Soul Kitchen is an eatery with a mission. You won’t find any prices listed on the menu. To dine in, you have two options: You can make a donation, or you can volunteer. One hour of work cooking, washing dishes, busing tables or waitressing earns anyone a three-course meal. At the original locations to cover a meal with cash, guests are asked to make a minimum $20 donation, or more if they want to help cover the cost of others. The Newark location will be a $12 minimum.

That hour of work or donation will buy you a soup or salad, an entree and a freshly baked dessert, all made with fresh, local and, when available, organic ingredients.
