Update: JBJ Soul Kitchen Chili Cook-Off


On behalf of Soul Kitchen, I would like to give a HUGE thank you to our first responders for your participation in our 3rd Annual Chili Cook-off, held for the first time in Toms River!!

Twelve teams came out from local police departments, fire companies, and first aid squads to showcase their chili for a great cause. The first place winner for the second year in a row was Toms River Police Department! Second place was Silverton Fire Company, and Ocean Gate Fire Department came in Third place.

A portion of the day’s proceeds benefited Hope Sheds Light, part will go to first place winner, and the remainder will help feed the hungry and food insecure at Soul Kitchen.

Thanks again for making this event a huge success! Please enjoy the attached pic!
