Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams Paisley are opening a free grocery in Nashville to help those in need. The Store, which is opening in partnership with Belmont University, will offer both fresh and nonperishable groceries to individuals in need for one year, with a goal of feeding 3,000 people.
“This is a grocery store with dignity for people who have fallen on hard times,” Brad shares. “All of us are one unforeseen disaster away from rock bottom. It’s nice to think about a place where when that happens to someone, they can use it to get back on their feet."
The Store will be set up next to Belmont University’s Ministry Center, with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and other organizations helping to provide the food. Those eligible for the free food will be referred to The Store by nonprofit and government agencies
Groundbreaking on The Store is projected for next year, depending on whether enough funding can be raised. Click here for info on how to donate.
