SOUL STORY

Sammy traveled from India over a decade ago to compete in Taekwondo competitions across the country. Eventually, Sammy realized that America offered him more than what his native country could, and officially moved to pursue what many consider “The American Dream.”  

With his family staying in India, Sammy had the hopes of making a better life for himself and for his family, and eventually bring them to America. After a few years, he finally landed in Red Bank, NJ which is how he learned about JBJ Soul Kitchen, where he has been coming for about five years. He says that his heart is happy when he comes to JBJ Soul Kitchen and enjoys a meal with his friends.  

Life has not been easy for Sammy, though. He made the difficult choice to leave his family behind, has unfortunately lost many friends along the way, and remains homeless. Throughout these circumstances, Sammy continues to remain optimistic and always wants to help others who are also in need.

“Sammy has been one of the hardest working volunteers that JBJ Soul Kitchen has.” Our Community Coordinator, Nicole, states, “Whatever we need at JBJ Soul Kitchen, Sammy is there for us. Not only is he there to help us at the community restaurant, he also looks out for his fellow in-need patrons.” She continued, “Since he is extremely self-sufficient, he endeavors to protect those who cannot protect themselves. Sammy has gone above and beyond to befriend those who may not be looking out for their own best interest.” Sammy takes pride in caring for others and always strives to do the right thing.

During the cold winter months, Sammy often stays at our JBJ & PBC Hope and Comfort Center. He has always been respectful and helpful to everyone there. Although Sammy works various jobs he still struggles to earn enough to bring his family here. He misses his wife, children, and mother and stays in contact with them as much as possible. With his strong faith, he strives to make a better life for himself and them and looks forward to the day when they can be reunited.
