The JBJ Soul Kitchen is a community restaurant that does not have a designated price on any of their menu. People who are struggling financially can eat for free and allowed to pay whatever available meal they wish by helping to serve meals or work in the kitchen in exchange for food. But, those who can afford a meal are encouraged to donate $20.

The second one opened in 2016 near Toms River, an area that was greatly affected by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. So far JBJ Soul Kitchen has already served over 105,893 meals, where 54% of those meals were paid for with donations and the rest 46% were earned by volunteering.
