Celebrate Soyfoods Month with us!
For the entire month of April, we’ll be celebrating the power of soy. The World Soy Foundation believes that soy has the power to reduce malnutrition in impoverished parts of the world, and we are dedicated to helping relieve world hunger using soy as a sustainable solution.
To help us celebrate, we’ve partnered with Minnesota Soybean for a campaign to help us continue reducing malnutrition through the power of soy! Starting April 1st, for anyone who “Likes” the Minnesota Soybean Facebook page, they will donate $5 to the WSF. In addition, for any “Shares” of their Soyfoods Month posts, they will donate an additional $5! Join us in celebrating and visit the Minnesota Soybean Facebook page starting April 1st!
