The couple partnered up with Brad’s alma mater Belmont University to open The Store, a food bank set up like a supermarket to serve both fresh and nonperishable groceries to people in need for one year. They are expected to start building in 2019 if the proper funds are raised.
“This is a grocery store with dignity for people who have fallen on hard times,” Brad, president of The Store’s board of trustees, told the Tennessean. “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.”
