JBJ Soul Kitchen is a non-profit Community Restaurant, run by the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, that serves paying and in-need customers.
A Community Restaurant is a place where individuals or families can come to eat a delicious farm-to-table meal in a warm, welcoming setting and meet our neighbors.
We have two locations in New Jersey. You can find us in Red Bank at 207 Monmouth St, Red Bank, NJ 07701 or in Tom's River at 1769 Hooper Ave, Toms River, NJ 08753.
Reservations are not needed at JBJ Soul Kitchen. We welcome everyone at our table and will seat guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Our in-need diners are given first priority.
JBJ Soul Kitchen serves a 3-course meal based on American Regional cuisine, beginning with the option of a soup or salad. Each guest also has the choice of an entrée such as a fish, meat, or vegetarian selection. The meal is finished with a freshly made dessert. Our chefs prepare many of the dishes with natural, locally sourced ingredients from our garden or the JBJ Soul Kitchen Farm.
Times are tough and we understand. If you are unable to pay the suggested donation, you may still enjoy a delicious meal. We invite you to join our community to learn about resources and volunteer opportunities at the Soul Kitchen.
For those that need to volunteer in order to provide a meal for themselves and/or their families, JBJ Soul Kitchen will always have an opportunity open for you. Please come to the restaurant during our hours of operation or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage our customers to effect change by making a suggested donation of $20 for their meal. Soul Kitchen offers a Pay It Forward Program where each additional $20 donation provides meals for those who are unable to donate.
If you would like to volunteer to help our staff in providing meals to those in need, an hour of orientation is necessary. Please click here to fill out our volunteer form.
If you are unable to visit the restaurant we welcome your tax-deductible donation to support us in our unique mission to provide healthy, organic and locally-grown food to our neighbors in need. Make a tax-deductible donation here.
