Bon Jovi Is Giving Free Meals to Unpaid Federal Workers During U.S. Government Shutdown
Published Jan 21, 2019Bon Jovi is trying to help furloughed government workers "have a nice day" by offering them free lunch today.
It's a federal holiday in the U.S. — which government workers could surely use given they've been working unpaid for 30 days — and Bon Jovi is celebrating by opening the doors to his restaurant JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, NJ.
Bon Jovi announced that local government workers and their families will be able to eat for free today between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. local time.
The free food will be provided in partnership with Gov. Phil Murphy and his his organization the Phil and Tammy Murphy Family Foundation.
The restaurant was originally opened in 2011 and allows customers to pay by donation or by offering their volunteer services.
