Educated Eats

2020-2021 Board of Directors

Founded in 2004, the RAMW Education Foundation (RAMW-EF), or Educated Eats, is committed to promoting the restaurant and foodservice industry as a career of unlimited opportunity. Since its founding, it's built a strong foundation by helping students and individuals currently working in the hospitality industry, obtain scholarships to further their education. Since 2005, Educated Eats has awarded $160,000+ to qualified applicants interested in pursuing culinary studies at the post-secondary level. Past scholarship winners have graduated from the finest culinary schools and gone on to work at prestigious jobs and internships.


Educated Eats hosts fundraisers throughout the year, including a silent auction and the Culinary Arts Visionary Awards Dinner, to raise money for these scholarships. Click here to donate today!
