Tyson Foods Recognized for their Investment to Immigrant Team Members

Tyson Foods on Wednesday was honored with the “Keepers of the American Dream” award by the National Immigration Forum.

The award, which goes to leaders and organizations that make their community and country a better place to live, was presented at the Leading The Way Conference in Washington D.C. Tyson Foods is investing an additional 1.5-million dollars to strengthen its commitment to immigrant team members by providing free legal and citizenship services.

Tyson, which includes pork and turkey plants in Storm Lake, has now invested more than 2.4-million dollars during the past two years to support partners like Immigrant Connection, which is a non-profit organization that provides immigrants with legal services, such as employment authorization renewals and petitions for citizenship.

Since 2020, Tyson Foods has doubled the legal services offered to team members, helped more than 500 Tyson team members with their citizenship status, and counseled over 25-hundred team members in need of legal services. Tyson has also spent millions of dollars providing ESL and citizenship classes through Upward Academy.
