Jon Bon Jovi has opened a restaurant that uses the pay what you can (PWYC) system to help Americans who are unable to purchase the most basic of necessitates: food.
BoingBoing sums it up:
Soul Kitchen is a new restaurant opened in Red Bank, New Jersey, by Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea. The establishment offers a “pay what you can afford” payment model, and serves wholesome, gourmet food made with fresh ingredients grown in the restaurantâ€™s garden, and other local produce.
On the website, they explain that Soul Kitchen is “A community restaurant with no prices on the menu; customers donate to pay for their meal. If you are unable to donate you may do volunteer work in exchange for your family’s meal.”
