Forgotten Boardwalk Food Drive



Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing Company, located in Cherry Hill, is set to be New Jersey’s newest micro-brewery.  Their 30 barrel brewing system has been hooked up and ready to go.  The only hitch is that Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing Company has not been issued a license from the NJ Alcoholic Beverage Control, yet.

Owner Jamie Queli states,

It’s been mildly frustrating.  We have been set to go, and our application was completed with the NJ ABC since May 5th.  I have been trying to think of what I can do with the space in the meantime that could be beneficial, so I decided to host a local food drive.

The food drive has been set for July 9th at the brewery location in Cherry Hill from 5pm – 8pm.  Forgotten Boardwalk is working hand and hand with the local Food Bank of Southern New Jersey.

Lemonade will also be served.  Head brewer for the company, David Bronstein, has been commissioned to make two batches of non-alcoholic lemonade to serve at the event.  All proceeds from the sale of lemonade will be donated to Sustainable Cherry Hill, a non-profit community outreach and educational organization that fosters the global sustainability movement at a local level.

Jamie Queli explained, “One of the biggest goals for my company is to be a great neighbor within our community.  If Forgotten Boardwalk was operational since the time we planned, there would have been significant tax revenue that the state could benefit from.  I have a very large space and I have the staff.  I thought it would be a great idea to turn our misfortune into something wonderful for the public.”

Forgotten Boardwalk will continue to participate in community enrichment activities and is establishing their own non-profit organization called: Don’t Be Naughty – The Responsible Foundation.  The Don’t Be Naughty Foundation will continue to develop and organize a variety of public service projects with emphasis on environmental responsibility and community sustainability.

 Our company logo is a feral cat, we will also be accepting canned cat food to donate to the Animal Adoption Center, a no-kill shelter located in Lindenwold, NJ.  “Let’s turn our lemons into lemonade, together, with this food drive

says Jamie Queli.
