Beef Certificate Program Has Positive Impact On Students

May 15, 2024

Beef has played a role in hundreds of Kansas students’ classwork through the Beef Certificate Program this school year. In fact, it has helped more than 137 schools in 48 counties use high-quality beef in family and consumer sciences and ProStart classes.

Participating schools received resource kits from the Kansas Beef Council (KBC) that included informational posters and free online classroom lessons, which were designed to help students learn more about beef cut selection, preparation, nutrition and cattle production. As a contributing sponsor of the Kansas ProStart Invitational®, KBC was able to support schools like Garden City High School as they showcased their culinary prowess by winning the Best Beef Dish Award at this spring’s competition in Wichita. This event helps encourage students as they aspire to grow their culinary talents.

Initiatives such as the Beef Certificate Program are just one way KBC equips educators and students with science-based resources, and the knowledge and skills needed to confidently prepare beef dishes in the future. For more information on how to get beef into local schools, click here.
