Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear and Kentucky State Police are encouraging Kentuckians to consider participating in 'Cram the Cruiser' by donating non-perishable food items to help feed Kentucky families in need this holiday season.
The food collection began on Tuesday November 23th, and will conclude on December 6th, 2021.
State Troopers will be staged at grocery and retail stores accepting items including canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat, macaroni and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned soups, chili or spaghetti sauce, brownie and cake mixes, coffee, water, powdered milk, and juices. Food items may also be dropped off at local post locations.
'Cram the Cruiser' is a statewide effort hosted by all 16 KSP posts, and the collected food is distributed to local food banks, shelters, churches and organizations.
