Your support directly impacts students across the Metropolitan Washington region. Every day Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) hears from members, and operators region-wide, that cultivating and maintaining great staff is the single hardest challenge they face as restaurant operators. RAMW's Education Foundation, Educated Eats and our nationally-recognized high school training program, ProStart, exist to do just that -- support and encourage the younger generation of students, cooks, and hospitality industry hopefuls to consider restaurants and foodservice for the long-lasting career it can provide with limitless opportunities to move up the ranks.
