Farm Bureau, Soybean Checkoff Partner on Facebook Page
Washington--The soybean checkoff and the American Farm Bureau Federation have partnered on a joint Internet Facebook page to promote national Food Check-Out Week. During Food Check-Out Week this week, AFBF has committed to donate $1 to Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Southwest Virginia for every person who “likes” the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NationalFoodCheckoutWeek), up to $3,500.
By lending support to this important cause, the soybean checkoff will help demonstrate that America’s soybean farmers remain committed to producing a safe, healthy, abundant and affordable supply of soy, used as a leading protein source to produce such things as nutritious meat and healthy cooking oil. Food Check-Out Week allows U.S. soybean farmers the opportunity to share with consumers that both groups face similar issues—providing nutritious meals while sticking to a tight budget.
