THE JON BON JOVI SOUL FOUNDATION CELEBRATES OPENING OF THE SOUL KITCHEN IN RED BANK, NJ ON OCTOBER 19
THE COMMUNITY KITCHEN SERVES UP NUTRITIOUS MEALS FOR ALL; ACCEPTS BOTH
CASH & VOLUNTEER HOURS AS PAYMENT
(October 19, 2011 – Red Bank, NJ) – Jon Bon Jovi today announced the opening of the JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, NJ to a crowd that overflowed the gardens and parking lot at the “community kitchen,” which redefines how the issue of hunger can be addressed. With no prices on the menu, the Soul Kitchen serves meals to customers who have earned them through volunteer hours. The Soul Kitchen operates as a program of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation and is sustained by cash payment from customers who are able to pay the suggested donation (or even a little more).
The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation has a special treat in store for you and there is only one way to find out what it is! Be sure to tune in to JBJSF.org on Wednesday, October 19th at 1:00pmEDT. You won’t want to miss this!
Country-music duo Sugarland donated 2 concert tickets and backstage meet & greet passes for their show on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, GA to the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation! Thank you to all who bid on this auction, we appreciate your support!
The Soul Kitchen website has just posted a warm note of thanks to all who have helped transform an old mechanic shop into the JBJ Soul Kitchen, and the gravel driveway into a beautiful vegetable garden.
As we introduce the community of Red Bank, NJ to Soul Kitchen, a restaurant with no prices on the menu and where customers pay whatever they can afford for a nutritious meal, we already have so many businesses and individuals to thank it is hard to know where to begin!
