Michael Birchenall Scholarship Winners Announced

Michael Birchenall was the editor and co-founder of Foodservice Monthly until he passed away in January 2017. Michael was very active in the foodservice industry and with the state restaurant associations in his markets. He regularly attended industry events, restaurant openings, and made the people of the foodservice and hospitality industry the focus of his coverage.
Michael was a man of strong conviction and passion. Among his many attributes, he is fondly remembered as a advocate who offered tremendous support, help, and encouragement to young people looking to make careers in the foodservice industry. He was always the champion of the bus boy, dishwasher, or hostess who was behind the scenes making things run smoothly.
The Michael Birchenall Scholarship Fund was established to assist aspiring foodservice professionals who plan to further their hospitality and foodservice education at a post-secondary or culinary school. In an effort to keep the scholarship fund viable for years to come, donations continue to be accepted. Contributions should be made in the name of the Michael Birchenall Scholarship Fund, care of the Restaurant Association of Maryland – 6301 Hillside Court, Columbia, MD 21046.
