So what's the answer? Perhaps our local soup kitchens should adopt the model established by aging rocker Jon Bon Jovi at his JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, N.J. where the poor are offered three-course meals. The restaurant's manifesto states, "… our menu has no prices. You select what you like and make the minimum donation ($10) ... If you are unable to donate, an hour of volunteering (help prepare the meal, set the tables and bus them, wash dishes, etc.) pays for your meal." Now $10 may be a bit steep for Westminster, but $5 or even $3 should certainly be affordable for clients. Most do have some discretionary resources, as their cars, smart phones, cigarettes and elaborate tattoos and piercings easily attest.
