Just as REAP Food Group set up shop in its new Garver Feed Mill office in April, 2023, we also welcomed Katie Rozas as our new Development Director. A member of the REAP Board of Directors since July 2021, and once a member of the Development Committee, Katie has an intimate understanding of REAP’s work. Her role will be to oversee and guide a growing portfolio of stewardship efforts including grants management, fundraising events, and donor relations.
Whether in the classroom or in the boardroom, Katie is passionate about social justice and environmental protection. Prior to joining REAP, she spent over 15 years in multilingual learner education, strategic communications, and marketing.
Katie was introduced to REAP six years ago by her then-four year old daughter who came home describing her new love for jicama sticks, which she tasted during snacktime, thanks to the REAP Farm to School snack program.
“I understand firsthand how the REAP mission, vision, and dedication of the organization has made an incredible impact in my community and beyond,” Katie said. “I am thrilled to now dedicate myself to extend that impact and ensure REAP secures the funding and resources necessary for its programs and services to grow and flourish for many years to come.”

“We are so thrilled to welcome Katie from board to development director at REAP,” REAP Food Group Executive Director Phil Kauth said. “Katie’s experience with communications and education and previous experience as a board member will move REAP’s mission forward. Her love and passion for the organization and food system storytelling will really connect with our supporters.”
