The JBJ Soul Foundation is proud to share that our program, JBJ Soul Kitchen, has once again been selected to receive a grant by Kohl’s A Community with Heart Program. In 2022, JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank and Toms River have served almost 25,000 meals to patrons and our surrounding community with 58% of the meals being served to those in need. The need in our communities continue to rise with the percentage of diners unable to pay for their meals increasing each month. With Kohl’s $30,000 grant, our community restaurants can continue serving healthy meals to those in-need and to the generous donors who support our mission to address issues of food insecurity.
Kohl’s grant to the JBJ Soul Foundation was made through Kohl’s A Community with Heart Program. In the spirit of giving with all of its heart this holiday season, Kohl’s, through its A Community with Heart Program, will donate $8 million in grants to selected nonprofit organizations across the country, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to family health and wellness. Kohl’s store teams and leaders across the country identified and nominated nonprofit recipients from 49 states that are near and dear to their hearts. The full list of selected grant recipients is available on Corporate.Kohls.com.
The donations are made possible through Kohl’s philanthropic merchandise program, Kohl’s Cares®, which sells children’s books and toys and donates 100 percent of the net profit to charitable organizations across the country that improve the health and wellness of families.

We are so thankful to have been selected once again to receive a grant from Kohl’s who have been a longtime supporter of our mission. This grant will support us in our mission to help break the cycle of hunger, poverty, and homelessness…one SOUL at a time. Thank you!
