Since I moved to Toms River 5 years ago, I drove by the JBJ Soul Kitchen daily. I of course did hear of the place before due to the Bon Jovi name. I actually literally grew up just a few blocks over from Jon back in Sayreville NJ! I remember the day MTV came to the neighborhood to “Give Away” Jon’s boyhood home!
After Covid 19 hit , being stuck in the house and seeing all the people hurting and needing help due to being out of work, I decided I needed to get out and try to volunteer. I figured Covid would pass but there would still be needs and a way to continue to volunteer so I signed up at the Soul Kitchen. It has been about a year since I have been doing it and I really do enjoy it! It gets me out of the home when I have some free time but it also feels really nice to be a part of something to make people feel good!
