A Yorkville, Illinois, soybean farmer was part of a team that helped send soy flour to families in Afghanistan.

Bill Wykes, director of the American Soybean Association’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health, traveled to Portsmouth, Virginia, to see 3,525 50-pound bags of the protein-rich soy flour leave the Port of Virginia en route to help feed 5,000 Afghan women and their families.

Wykes also serves as a director for the Illinois Soybean Association.
