Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorethea are using their JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, New Jersey to help federal workers affected by the partial government shutdown
The restaurant offered up a free lunch today (Monday) to furloughed workers. The couple say in a statement that the lunch is "a way to create a place of support and resources for furloughed federal workers, many of whom are our friends and neighbors... In line with our mission, federal workers are encouraged to join us for a delicious meal and to learn about additional support and resources available in our community."
The JBJ Soul Kitchen is a nonprofit restaurant staffed by volunteers who work to earn meals there.
