You Can Help Military Families by Feasting on Cracker Barrel Country Fried Turkey Family Meals This Month
Do some good while doing your belly good, too, next month with Cracker Barrel Old County Store's special offering to honor our military heroes: This November, the Lebanon, Tennessee, based restaurant company will donate a $10 Cracker Barrel gift card to Operation Homefront for military families for each Country Fried Turkey Family Meal Basket sold through the end of the month, up to a total of $50,000 worth of gift cards for these deserving families to use. To boost the impact of this, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Foundation will make an additional $50,000 cash donation to Operation Homefront, totaling up to $100,000. Since 2016, Cracker Barrel has worked with the nonprofit—which provides programs and services to support military families thrive, as well as offering them financial, housing, and caregiving assistance and services—as their primary nonprofit partner. In this time, Cracker Barrel has donated more than $1.5 million in money and goods to the organization (and for more than 50 years, Cracker Barrel has supported several other military-focused nonprofits such as Fisher House Foundation and The Legion Fund).
You can order the Country Fried Turkey Family Meal Basket at crackerbarrel.com/giveback for pickup, curbside pickup, and delivery. Each meal basket comes with "six tender turkey filets hand-breaded and fried until crispy, [and] topped with creamy herbed pan gravy," and is accompanied by the eatery's new three-cheese squash casserole, the choice of one additional side, cranberry relish, and buttermilk biscuits.
"This year has been especially tough for military families impacted by COVID-19, and they need our support now more than ever,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., President and CEO of Operation Homefront in a press release. “It’s an honor to join with our amazing Cracker Barrel partners again this year to make the holidays brighter for this very special and deserving group of our fellow citizens."
As a token of their gratitude, on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11, Cracker Barrel will also offer all U.S. military veterans a complimentary slice of Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola® Cake when dining at any Cracker Barrel location nationwide.
