Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is set to launch a new program, ‘There’s Comfort in Giving,’ which will donate meals and pay-it-forward to healthcare professionals in the HCA Healthcare system fighting on the frontlines of COVID-19.
Over the next few weeks, Cracker Barrel will donate 5,000 meals to healthcare workers at select hospitals in partnership with Sony Music Nashville. Chris Young will kick off the program with a live stream performance on the Cracker Barrel Facebook page on Sunday, April 26.
“I am glad to be teaming up with Cracker Barrel to give back to the doctors, nurses, and first responders who are pushed to the limit day in and day out fighting COVID-19,” said multi-platinum selling Sony Music Nashville recording artist, Chris Young. “My Dad is in the high risk category as a cancer survivor and missing part of his lung and I’m immensely grateful for everything our healthcare workers are doing to keep everyone safe.”
Others on the Sony Music Nashville roster are also set to participate, including Adam Doleac, Jameson Rodgers, Matt Stell, Mitchell Tenpenny, Niko Moon, Rachel Wammack, Robert Counts, Seaforth, and The Sisterhood Band. Many artists will host performances both on their own social channels as well as on Cracker Barrel channels. Each Sony Music Nashville act has chosen specific hospitals that hold special meaning to them to receive meal donations. Among the hospitals that will receive meals are: Medical City Healthcare (Dallas, Texas); HCA Houston Healthcare (Houston, Texas); HCA Healthcare affiliated hospitals (Orlando, Florida); HCA Healthcare affiliated hospitals (Tampa, Florida) and TriStar Health (Nashville, Tennessee).
“We’re humbled and honored to provide meals to those on the frontlines working so hard to protect us,” said Jeff Sigel, Vice President of Marketing for Cracker Barrel. “Thanks to a great partnership with Sony Music Nashville, we’re pleased to invite guests and fans to pay it forward.”
“We are deeply grateful to Cracker Barrel and Sony Music Nashville for generously honoring our healthcare heroes,” said Heather J. Rohan, President of TriStar Health. “Thank you for recognizing our dedicated caregivers who are giving their all everyday on the frontlines.”
When Cracker Barrel guests give the virtual gift of a meal to someone they love, Cracker Barrel will give a meal to a frontline worker. With the purchase of every $10 in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® e-gift cards via crackerbarrel.com now through May 12, Cracker Barrel will donate one additional meal (up to 5,000 meals) to healthcare workers.
