Brad Paisley and wife to open free grocery store in Nashville!

BRAD PAISLEY and his wife KIMBERLY are working with Belmont University to open a "modern food pantry" in Nashville.  They're calling it The Store, and it'll have fresh and nonperishable groceries for people in need.

This is a new kind of food bank.  It's designed to look and work like a free grocery store.  They got the idea after volunteering with their sons at a similar place in Santa Barbara, California.  

Brad says, quote, "This is a store with dignity for people who've fallen on hard times.  All of us are one unforeseen disaster away from rock bottom.  It's nice to think about a place where when that happens, someone can use it to get back on their feet."

The Store plans to offer on-the-job training . . . and other services like medical and legal assistance.

Brad and Kimberly are donating an "initial gift" to kick things off, but more money is needed so they've introduced a "Brick By Brick Campaign."  You can get involved by hitting up TheStore.org.  They're hoping to break ground next year.
