Support the Foundation




We do a lot at the Restaurant Association of Maryland Education Foundation (RAMEF)—We teach ServSafe® & alcohol awareness classes, administer the ProStart program across the state, host the Maryland ProStart Student Invitational (MPSI) Culinary and Management Competition, and much more. We couldn't do it without you.

Get involved today and be part of our growth.

You can do your part to help support and nurture the next generation of hospitality professionals. You do not need to make a major commitment to do it. Visiting a classroom, being a judge for our competition, or lending your knowledge, skills, and abilities for our ProStart teacher trainings are all great ways to give back and make a lasting impression.
