FRANKFORT, KY (AP) – Kentucky State Police have started collecting donated nonperishable food items for families in need during the holidays.
“Cram the Cruiser” is going on at all 16 state police posts. State police say collected food is distributed to food banks, shelters, churches and other groups. The drive started Tuesday and continues until Dec. 6.
Troopers will be at grocery and retail stores accepting products like canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat and macaroni and cheese. Food items may also be dropped off at local police posts.
Public Affairs Commander Capt. Paul Blanton says posts compete to see which one gathers the most food.
