After last week’s announcement about opening a homeless shelter for teens, Jon Bon Jovi is back in the news helping the underprivileged yet again.

The planning board in Red Bank, NJ gave Bon Jovi’s plan to convert an auto repair shop into a restaurant a thumbs-up. Funded again through the JB Soul Foundation, the restaurant would serve people whether they can pay or not.

The restaurant will have a menu of healthy dishes and a large selection of items. As a nod to his homeland, Bon Jovi’s restaurant will use local ingredients from New Jersey farms. Customers will have the option to pay cash ($10 is suggested if you can swing it) or volunteer time with the foundation or another charity to pay for the meal. If a customer has more money to spend, it will go towards a meal for someone else. In other words, nobody is turned away.

Bon Jovi’s restaurant is based on concepts used in Denver and Salt Lake City and is expected to open in early July.
