The JBJ Soul Kitchen, along with the Murphy Family Foundation, are partnering to extend the opportunity for furloughed federal workers to get a free meal.

I was at JBJ Soul Kitchen in Toms River earlier in the week when the offered free meals to furloughed federal workers, and the response was incredible. A lot of people took advantage of the opportunity, and now it's been announced that the program has been extended.

Any furloughed federal worker just has to show ID for a free meal anytime during normal operating hours at either the JBJ Soul Kitchen Red Bank or Toms River location.

If you want to take advantage of this extended opportunity, you can visit the Red Bank location at 207 Monmouth St., or the Toms River location at 1769 Hooper Ave. Just remember to bring proof of federal employment with you.

The hours of operation in Red Bank are Wednesday, Thursday Friday and Saturday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, and Sunday from 11:30pm to 2:00pm in Red Bank. The new Toms River hours are Wednesday Thursday and Friday from 11:30am to 3:00pm, Saturday 5:00pm to 7:00pm and Sunday from 11:30 to 2:00pm.

It was great to see all the good work being done at JBJ Soul Kitchen this week and it's awesome to know that along, with the Murphy Family Foundation, the help for furloughed federal workers will continue.
