Chili is the word for JBJ Soul Kitchen's Chili Cook-Off for a great cause.

The Chili Cook-Off is all about the awesome creations of our local first responders and begins Tuesday ( October 27th, 2020) and runs for four weeks, according to the patch.com. It's the 6th Annual JBJ Soul Kitchen Chili Cook-Off. The first responder's chili will be an appetizer on the menu for the next four weeks.

A $20 donation, you get a three course meal and when you order a "featured" chili made by one of your favorite first responders, the contestant receives a point. The first responder group with the most points wins.

This year the Chili Cook-Off you have the option of curbside pick-up due to Covid-19. All donations help feed families in need in the community. Click here to order online.

JBJ Soul Kitchen has been helping feed the community since the summertime during the pandemic. JBJ Soul Kitchen offers dine in and or take-out.

The first responders in Ocean and Monmouth Counties participating with their chili:

**NOW - October 24th, 2020 - New Jersey State Police

**October 27th, 2020 - October 31st, 2020 - Tinton Falls EMS

**November 3rd 2020 - November 7th, 2020 - Toms River Fire Department #1

**November 10th, 2020 - November 14th, 2020 - Island Heights First Aid

This is such an awesome way to help out the community. We are honoring and celebrating local first responders and their fabulous chili and helping out families that might need it, especially now with the coronavirus pandemic.
