On Tuesday, May 10, 2016 the Bon Jovis’ expanded their dream with the grand opening of a second Soul Kitchen in Toms River in New Jersey. The restaurant, which offers a SoHo-like dining experience with a nutritious upscale fare and no prices listed on the menu, is part of the new B.E.A.T. Center offering families and individuals in need a place for food, job training, and resources to get back on their feet.

“This location being even larger, we are going to have an even greater impact on the community of Toms River. Our mission has always been to affect positive change and address the issues of hunger and homelessness. We are expanding our mission with a network of partners and resources to meet the needs of the community of Toms River.” – Jon Bon Jovi
