It is not unlikely for celebrities to have their own perfume brands, restaurants or even clothing line. While many of them make huge profits out of these business others focus on contributing to society, working for the upliftment of the disadvantaged among us. The 90s heartthrob and legendary musician Jon Bon Jovi is such a star. He has started a community restaurant model that aims to feed anybody and everybody. The volunteer-run restaurants that are situated in New Jersey have caught the attention of many for the charitable work as well as its unique working model.



 

According to People, JBJ Soul Kitchen is a community restaurant that does not have a designated price on any of the dishes on its menu. Customers who dine can either make a donation or just volunteer in the kitchen for their three-course meal that includes soup or salad, an entrée of your choice, and a freshly baked dessert.

The restaurant welcomes people from all socio-economic backgrounds to share the experience together over some delicious food, regardless of whether they are paying or volunteering. "...here the community kitchen actually allows people to come and volunteer or come and enjoy a meal with the in-need. You meet them; they meet you. It’s more of a community feel," said the restaurant’s general manager Lou Morreale.



 

The unique establishment uses fresh, local and organic ingredients, creating some delicious food such as pan-seared salmon, homemade jalapeno cornbread and spinach rice.

Apart from the food, its unique seating arrangements allows its diners to meet people and bond over a meal. "People are seated communally because we want people here to read each other. You never know who you’re sitting next to. You don’t know if its someone in need or if its someone who’s come to pay. That’s really not what this is about. What you’re going to find is so much in common with your neighbor," said Bon Jovi to People.
