Kentucky State Police kicked off their third annual ‘Cram the Cruiser’ food drive Tuesday. 

Food collection sites have been established at all 16 posts throughout the state and at the Headquarters location in Frankfort

The campaign extends through December 14, 2012 and is designed to collect non perishable food items for needy families. 

The food will be distributed to local shelters, churches or other organizations serving those in need during the holiday season.

Suggested donations include 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.

Last year KSP collected 50,931 pounds of food.
