The U.S. is welcoming historic levels of refugees, including 100,000 at-risk Afghans who worked alongside the U.S government and over 125,000 Ukrainians displaced by Russia’s recent military invasion. The Biden administration has also pledged to welcome up to 125,000 refugees per year from all over the world through the refugee resettlement program and up to 360,000 Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans per year via humanitarian parole. These developments represent an enormous opportunity for American food industry companies to help integrate refugees into the U.S. economy. View this presentation with the Tent Partnership for Refugees to learn why the food industry should look to refugees as a new source of talent – that can help fill critical labor shortages and increase overall retention rates – and how they can develop successful refugee hiring initiatives with Tent’s pro-bono support.
