A restaurant owned by musician and New Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi provided free meals to local government workers and their families during the federal government shutdown. The restaurant, called JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, N.J., provided the free meals to furloughed workers on Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
JBJ Soul Kitchen is a non-profit restaurant managed by Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation that strive to fight poverty, hunger and homelessness. Since its opening in 2011, the restaurant itself serves paying and in-need customers, and operates on paying system that relies on donation and volunteer. Bon Jovi is working together with New Jersey governor, Phil Murphy’s The Murphy Family Foundation, on this cause.
