Voltaggio goes to Annapolis in support of school breakfast

The Baltimore Sun

Bryan Voltaggio, chef and co-owner of Volt, is scheduled to testify in Annapolis on Monday at 3 p.m. in support of increased school breakfast funding. Voltaggio and members of the Partnership to End Childhood Hunger in Maryland will testify on behalf of Maryland Meals for Achievement (MMFA), a school breakfast program, at a hearing of the House Appropriations Committee, Subcommittee on Education and Economic Development.

Voltaggio has been a longtime supporter of Share Our Strength, the nation’s leading child anti-hunger organization, and their efforts to end childhood hunger throughout his career, first while working for Charlie Palmer Steak in Washington, D.C.. Since opening Volt, he has raised more than $200,000 for the cause. Voltaggio was awarded Share Our Strength’s Chef/Restaurateur of the Year award in 2010.

MMFA is a classroom breakfast project administered by the Maryland State Department of Education that provides in-classroom breakfast to all students at 228 high-need schools across Maryland.
