Support a Food Charity And Eat Delicious Fresh, Local Fish

Sublime Seafood Company, tucked away in the corner of the Produce Junction plaza on Tilton Road in Egg Harbor Township, does an amazing fish taco. It’s also run by a guy with a heart, who is on a mission to get more people in the community to eat better food. Sublime’s owner and chef, Charles Soreth, is pitching the Sublime Seafood Club, which he hopes will both give back to a good foodie cause and get people to eat fresh fish regularly. The 12-week program will give participants two dinner-sized portions of a responsibly-sourced fish each week, plus a recipe and information on the fish. The cost is $220 (that works out to $18.33 a week) and the proceeds go to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

But earlier this year, the twenty-something Mays Landing resident ditched the steady gig in favor of starting his own woodcraft business.
