A Wonderful Weekend of Celebration at the Friends and Family Community Fair

For the first time, JBJ Soul Kitchen in Toms River, NJ combined it’s annual Friends & Family Community Resource Fair with it’s highly popular “Every Bowl Feeds A Soul” Empty Bowls Pottery Event.

On Saturday, September 14, 2019 at JBJ Soul Kitchen Toms River (1769 Hooper Avenue, Toms River in the B.E.A.T Center Complex), organizations gathered to distribute information on local programs and services available to the community.

JBJ Soul Kitchen simultaneously hosted their annual Every Bowl Feeds a Soul event showcasing hand made ceramic bowls which were available for a $20 Pay It Forward donation as part of ongoing efforts to address food insecurity issues in our area.

Thank you to all of our participating organizations for their generous support!
