Veterans Day is just a few days away and Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is proud to continue its support of military service members, veterans and their families through special recognition and donation efforts.
We will honor our nation’s heroes this Veterans Day, November 11, by offering military veterans a complimentary slice of our Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola® Cake at all 646 Cracker Barrel locations.
Guests of Cracker Barrel are also invited to help America’s military families by participating in a giving campaign in support of Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit focused on building strong, stable and secure military families.
Between Oct. 30 – Nov. 11, Cracker Barrel is donating 20 percent of proceeds from online and in-store purchases of Lodge cookware to Operation Homefront. Lodge items available at Cracker Barrel include cast-iron skillets, pans and griddles that have been favorites of home cooks and chefs alike for generations. Funds raised will be donated in the form of gift cards to help provide holiday meals to military families across the country.
Operation Homefront serves America’s military families in numerous ways. Since its founding shortly after 9/11, the organization has fulfilled nearly 37,000 requests for emergency assistance, providing more than $21 million in financial aid to help military families overcome many of the challenges inherent to military life.
Last year, Cracker Barrel and the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Foundation together contributed over $430,000 to Operation Homefront through monetary and in-kind donations. Most recently, Cracker Barrel donated over 1,100 of its iconic rocking chairs to Operation Homefront in support of its many programs, including “Homes on the Homefront” that helps place deserving veterans and their families in mortgage-free homes.
Cracker Barrel has a great selection of Air Force, Marine, Army, Navy and Coast Guard items online at shop.crackerbarrel.com.
