Jon Bon Jovi and his pay-what-you-can restaurant in Red Bank, New Jersey held a friendly chili cook-off recently in Red Bank that pitted first responders against each other!

Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen in Red Bank was the host of the cook-off last weekend and it couldn't have been a more beautiful day for some food and friends.

JBJ Soul Kitchen is a community restaurant with no prices.  Customers donate what they think they should pay for their meal.  Those who can't pay may volunteer in the kitchen in exchange for their meal.

It's an amazing place, with wonderful food and an even better mission statement.  Bon Jovi certainly knows how to give back to the community.

The Soul Kitchen at Toms River is currently under construction and hopefully will be ready for volunteers later in the Fall.
