LEBANON, Tenn., Oct. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- This Veterans Day, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store will thank the brave men and women who have served our nation by offering military veterans a choice of a complimentary slice of Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola® Cake or its Pumpkin Pie Latte at all 660 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations nationwide.
Additionally, during this time, Cracker Barrel guests can give back with a purchase of one of the brand's iconic wooden rocking chairs that line the front porch of each store. Ten percent of the retail sales price from eligible online and in-store purchases of wooden rocking chairs at Cracker Barrel will be donated to Operation Homefront, a national military nonprofit with a mission to build strong, stable and secure military families.
"It's an honor to be able to serve America's armed forces and their families every day," said Cracker Barrel Senior Manager of Corporate Citizenship Sloane Lucas. "On Veterans Day, we want to show them additional love and appreciation for all the sacrifices they have made – and continue to make – serving our nation."
In 2016, Cracker Barrel selected Operation Homefront as its flagship nonprofit partner and has since donated more than $1.3 million in financial support and goods to help make a real, lasting difference in the lives of military families.
Operation Homefront serves America's military families by providing critical financial assistance, transitional and permanent housing, and recurring family support programs to help them overcome many of the challenges intrinsic to military life.
For 50 years, the mission of Cracker Barrel has been Pleasing People and helping those in the neighborhoods in which it operates. Cracker Barrel and the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Foundation are Pleased to Serve our nation's service members, veterans and their families by supporting several military-focused nonprofits, such as Operation Homefront, Armed Services YMCA, Fisher House Foundation, A Soldier's Journey Home, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and The Legion Fund, in their effort to providing for those in need.
