“If you can’t do what you do, do what you can.”
Those wise words are what Jon Bon Jovi has posted on Instagram as a reminder that if you’ve been sidelined from work — like pretty much every musician is right now — you can keep busy while helping others.
Jon used that phrase to caption a photo of himself scrubbing a steam table pan in the kitchen of JBJ Soul Kitchen, his community restaurant in Red Bank, New Jersey. The eatery allows low-income families to eat out without paying high prices: Diners can volunteer in the kitchen to pay for their meal, or benefit from other customers’ donations.
Currently, the Red Bank restaurant and its sister eatery in Toms River, New Jersey, are open for take-out to “our in-need community only,” according to its website.
“Due to food demand, the menu will be limited,” says the website. “If you or your family are struggling for food, we are a resource for you.”
The new Bon Jovi album Limitless is due out May 15. The group’s tour is supposed to start on June 10, though it’s unclear if it will proceed.
