At Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, it's always been about Pleasing People.

Cracker Barrel Foundation Logo

Since 1969, Pleasing People® has been our mission. It drives our passion for helping people in the neighborhoods where we do business. We are Pleased to Serve™ communities across the country by donating to charities and worthy nonprofits that help provide comfort to those in need.

The Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Foundation supports a diverse array of nonprofits and programs, awarding millions of dollars over 23 years and counting. Cracker Barrel also offers additional assistance to countless charitable organizations across the nation.

Military Family
Our main focus is supporting members of America’s armed forces and their families. Cracker Barrel and the Cracker Barrel Foundation have long supported military-focused nonprofits and charitable initiatives, including Operation Homefront, the USO, the National Military Family Association, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, United Through Reading, and the National Museum of the United States Army, among many others. By directing most of our giving to this area, we believe Cracker Barrel can make a real, lasting difference in people’s lives.
Cracker Barrel Employee Support
The strength of our brand and the success of our stores rely on the health and well being of our employees and their families. Cracker Barrel supports its employees and their spouses and children through several key initiatives.
