Kansas Soybeans as a Food
The Kansas Soybean Commission (KSC) invites Kansas middle- and high-school family and consumer sciences (FACS) departments to participate in the “Kansas Soybeans as a Food” educational program.
The program’s purpose is to acquaint students with the nutritional qualities, uses and taste of soyfoods, as well as the importance of the livestock industry to soybean farmers. A list of possible soy products you may use is available at http://j.mp/SoyProducts. Because the livestock industry consumes 97% of the soybean meal produced in Kansas, up to half of your reimbursement may be for meat and dairy products.
By completing the following steps, you may receive reimbursement for the cost of soybean products used in food preparation (e.g., soy flour, tofu or soy beverage), soy products available in stores (e.g., soy oil, crackers, chocolate, margarine or mayonnaise), or meat and dairy products used in your classroom.
- Submit (electronically or by mail) the application form for KSC approval.
- Conduct an educational unit in your classroom using nutritional information and actual products.
- Return copies of receipts for reimbursement along with the reimbursement form.
To keep your reference materials up-to-date, we will send you soyfoods information and recipes. If you are looking for any specific resources, please note them on your application, or e-mail us, and we will do our best to provide them to you. You also can find information about soyfoods on our Soyfoods webpage.
Please submit your application form for the fall 2019 FACS program by Sept. 20, 2019, and for spring 2020 by Feb. 21, 2020. You may submit both semesters by the fall deadline; however, each semester should be on a separate form. Following completion of the educational unit, submit the reimbursement form, along with receipts for the products purchased, by Dec. 20, 2019, for the fall semester, or May 8, 2020, for the spring semester.
Applications can be completed in two ways.
- Electronic submission is preferred and can be found below. Complete the PDF form, then save and e‑mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org with FACS on the subject line.
- Physically mail the application to the Kansas Soybean Commission, 1000 SW Red Oaks Place, Topeka, KS 66615-1207.
