Since 1941, the Dickey family has taken pride in serving slow-smoked barbecue in their local communities. Today, the Dickey family and its family of restaurants take pride in serving those who serve our communities, such as firefighters, EMTs, frontline medical workers, and law enforcement.
This evolution in community involvement and civic stewardship is The Dickey Foundation. Founded in 2016, the foundation, enthusiastically led by Maurine Dickey, supports local law enforcement, firefighters, and their families. The foundation is national, yet the support is intensely local — benefiting law enforcement and firefighters who put their lives on the line daily, serving the public.
The mission of The Dickey Foundation is to help protect first responders. The Dickey Foundation also creates partnerships between law enforcement and communities crucial in orchestrating crime reduction programs and initiatives.
