Through his Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, he is providing financial backing to Spoon Full of Hope. The church project began serving meals in January in a firehouse in Union Beach, New Jersey, near his childhood home of Sayreville.
It lost its funding last summer.
Patrons can either pay a minimum donation or give an hour of time to earn a dining certificate for the volunteer and four family members.
It's similar to the JBJ Soul Kitchen, a community restaurant Bon Jovi founded in Red Bank in 2011.
Bon Jovi says the project gives hope to people still rebuilding their lives.
