FoodCorps Service Member
Kat Rains is a FoodCorps member serving at M.A. Lynch Elementary in Redmond starting this fall. Kat was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, but got her degree from Appalachian State University in the beautiful mountain town of Boone, NC. This is where her love of sustainability and outdoors flourished, but her degree in Art Education brought her back to an elementary school in Charlotte to teach after graduation. Kat created a garden and art club at the school and felt passionately about incorporating sustainability into her teaching. She is thrilled to be in central Oregon to pursue trail running and other outdoor sports, while having the amazing opportunity to serve with FoodCorps and learn from the students, staff and community.
