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, starting with your choice of salad or soup, followed by a choice of entrée such as fish, meat or a vegetarian selection. The meal is finished with a freshly made dessert. Many of the dishes are made with fresh, organic ingredients from our garden or the JBJ Soul Kitchen Farm.
Times are tough and we understand. If you are unable to pay for your meal, you can volunteer at JBJ Soul Kitchen as your payment. One hour of volunteer time earns a dining certificate that feeds the volunteer and up to 4 family members.
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 paying customers to effect change by donating $20 which covers the cost of your meal and beverages and helps defray the cost of meals for our in-need volunteers.
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.
