On Wednesday, January 25th, the JBJ Soul Kitchen partnered with the Monmouth County Department of Human Services and Pilgrim Baptist Church in Red Bank to sponsor a Community Resource Day: **Project Homeless Connect 2012**.
The State of Homelessness in America 2012 examines homelessness between 2009 and 2011, a period of economic downturn in the nation. The report shows that despite the bad economy, homelessness decreased by 1 percent during this period. The decrease was likely due to a significant investment of federal resources to prevent homelessness and quickly re-house people who did become homeless.
Little Silver, NJ – Red Bank Regional’s culinary arts students were delighted to share their skills and service for The Soul Kitchen, in Red Bank, this past holiday season. The students took a field trip from their usual high school culinary class to dice and chop under the direction of Executive Chef Zeet Peabody. The Soul Kitchen serves up home-style three course meals every Thursday, Friday and Saturday in this community kitchen. Many of RBR’s students are from the Red Bank area, where the Soul Kitchen is located.
