KSP starts annual food drive

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police officials have kicked off their annual campaign to collect food for those in need across the state.

Food collection sites have been set up at all 16 KSP posts and at the agency’s headquarters in Frankfort.

State police say the campaign to collect non-perishable food items will extend through Dec. 16.

KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb says the agency collected more than 124,000 pounds of food during last year’s campaign.

He says the food that’s collected will be distributed to local shelters, churches and other organizations serving those in need.

Suggested donations include canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat, macaroni and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned soups, brownie and cake mixes, coffee, water, powdered milk and juices.
