  • Published on Nov 24, 2019
  • Rocker Jon Bon Jovi made a career out of filling stadiums with cheering fans, and now he's using that appeal - and his own financial resources - to help feed the homeless and needy through his JBJ Soul Kitchen restaurants in New Jersey. Tracy Smith talked with Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, about their efforts, cooking up classic farm-to-table cuisine in a place that also dishes up hope.

    Just another reason I love this man so much. He doesn't do this for the adulation, he see with his own eyes, feels with his big heart the need that is out there. Instead of just saying I wish I could do something, he goes out and gets it done. Oh by the way Dorthea, I feel ya. Last served, wrong order, forgotten..... Yup that's me too.

    Lets not forget Habitats for Humanity the they're deeply involved in as well. Nit to to mention the fact that Jon's stood by Ritchie all these years with his drug and alcohol problem. Deep respects for that type of commitment to his community, his family and his friends. It's a rare sight in this world.

    Nice guy. Heard that old age has caught up with his voice. This is from people who have recently seen him live. If he does decide to retire from show business, he has a beautiful fulfilling career. Thank you JBJ. Love your wife too!

    This is awesome! My heart is for hungry children. Schools turn away kids with no money or make them eat a cold bag lunch while the other kids get a hot meal. I grew up hungry, and have known poverty several times in my life where I needed food kitchens for food. I never had enough to eat as a child. Can you find a way to help hungry school kids? It's heartbreaking to see kids turned away because they cannot pay through no fault of their own. It's also agonizing to see other kids eating good food that you can't have. Not sure if you read the comments, but if you and your wife could come up with a plan to help hungry school kids, especially the grade school children, that would be even more awesome! I admire the work you're doing! It's a cause close to my heart. Food banks are "okay" but mostly what you get is expired meat, and produce that is rotted, or jars that have been opened and someone has taken a bite, stuff like that etc. I am not rich, but no longer poor.(Praise God) and we donate what we can, and when we give to food banks, we give good stuff. I pray your mission leads you further, and inspires more wealthy people to help the hungry. In a country such as America, where food is so emphasized, and people waste so much, and people eat very expensive meals such as steak, lobster, etc (We don't), there should not be hungry people. I hope this is just the beginning of a campaign that catches on to feed all the hungry people. God bless you both!

    Great story

    The only way to eternal life is to be born again by repenting of your sins and to believe by faith that God sent his only son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins.

    Lord Jesus, I ask You to forgive my sins and save me from eternal separation from God. By faith, I accept Your work and death on the cross as sufficient payment for my sins. Thank You for providing the way for me to know You and to have a relationship with my heavenly Father. Through faith in You, I have eternal life. Thank You also for hearing my prayers and loving me unconditionally. Please give me the strength, wisdom, and determination to walk in the center of Your will. In Jesus’ name, amen.
