State Police say its holiday 'Cram the Cruiser' food drive brought in 62 tons of food.

The donations will help feed needy families across Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer started the program in 2010.

Since then, the agency has given more than 300,000 pounds of food to shelters, food pantries and churches across the Commonwealth.

Brewer says the campaign has developed into a friendly competition among KSP posts and CVE regions to see which location can collect the most food.

He says the Harlan post is the reigning champion after collecting 29,944 pounds of food this year.
