ANNOUNCEMENTS

JBJ SOUL KITCHEN NOW OPEN FOR OUTDOOR DINING

 

Welcome back – we’ve missed you!

Over the past 13 weeks, JBJ Soul Kitchen continued to uphold our mission to help those struggling with food insecurity by providing meals to-go to our in-need community. In total, our staff served over 7,800 meals to individuals, families, community partners and front-line workers. Thank you to all of our donors and community partners for helping us sustain this effort during this challenging time.

As the State of New Jersey enters Stage 2 of its Reopening Plan, we are happy to announce that we are transitioning back to our Pay-It-Forward model effective June 16, 2020. See operating hours below.

If you and your family are still in need of food, you can still count on us for a delicious meal served with dignity. We ask you to come by and enjoy a sit-down meal at our outdoor dining area and learn about volunteer opportunities, resources, and services in the area.

Those who wish to support our mission may join us for a three-course meal for a $20 donation per meal. In addition, kid entrées are now complimentary with purchase of a regular meal. You may also purchase a Pay-it-Forward donation card for $20 to cover the cost of in-need meals. Please note that our in-need customers will always be seated first as they have no other options for dining. 

As we navigate to our new normal, we will continue to focus on the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, patrons and community. To this end, we have established  House Rules  to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with the State of New Jersey Department of Health, CDC and local regulations.

Thank you for your support and for dining at the JBJ Soul Kitchen—where dignity and respect are always on the menu. We hope to see you soon!

How It Works

THE BASICS

What is the JBJ Soul Kitchen?

JBJ Soul Kitchen is a non-profit Community Restaurant, run by the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, that serves paying and in-need customers.

What is a Community Restaurant?

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.

SETTLE THE TAB

Do I pay for my meal?

There are no prices on our menu. 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.

What if I am unable to make a donation?

For those who are unable to make a donation for their meal, we invite you to come in, enjoy a meal and learn how you can be part of the JBJ Soul Kitchen community by volunteering. Please come to the restaurant during our hours of operation or email us at info@jbjsoulkitchen.org. We will always have an opportunity open for you.

How can I make a difference?

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.

We have two locations in New Jersey:

Red Bank

Do I need reservations?

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.

What kind of food is served?

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.

How can I volunteer?
