Jordan Rainwater

Jordan Rainwater was hired as Klamath County School District’s Farm to School project coordinator. She will work closely with project manager Patty Case of the OSU-Klamath Basin Research & Extension Service. The first general Farm to School training for growers and educators is Nov. 6.

Expect to see more fresh produce and locally grown food in Klamath County School District cafeterias.

The school district, in partnership with Oregon State University-Klamath Basin Research & Extension Service, has been awarded a competitive $96,538 USDA implementation grant for its Farm-to-School program. The goal of the two-year project is to strengthen the supply chain with area farmers and producers so more students can experience locally grown foods in their school cafeterias.
