Brad Paisley said, “Our goal is to give dignity to parents. They can go to The Store and shop in a completely normal way, from choosing the food to checking out, but with no money exchanging hands. The kids can even ride a mechanical pony out in front of The Store – no charge. Kids do not need the stress of wondering how their parents are going to feed them. I am grateful for our Founder’s Circle partners, Belmont, Sysco, Amerigroup and ESa, they and all of our community partners, are helping to make The Store a reality.”

The Store operates as a free-referral based grocery store, allowing people in need to shop with dignity for their basic needs. It aims to empower individuals seeking self-sufficiency.
