FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police have collected more than 123 tons of food for needy families around the state.

The food collected during the “Cram the Cruiser” event is given to shelters, food banks and churches. Since the program began in 2010, the agency has contributed more than three-quarters of a million pounds of food.

State police Commissioner Rodney Brewer says the amount collected this year is a record and is due to the generosity of businesses and citizens.

Brewer says state police posts and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement regions have a friendly competition to see which can collect the most food. This year’s leader is the Henderson post, which collected 44,670 pounds.
