FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's lead police agency has started its annual food drive across the state.
Food collection sites have been set up at all 16 Kentucky State Police posts and at the agency's headquarters in Frankfort.
The food drive running through Dec. 13 collects non-perishable foods for needy families.
KSP spokesman Trooper Paul Blanton says the agency collected more than 100,000 pounds of food during the 2012 campaign.
Blanton says the food will be distributed to local shelters, churches and other organizations serving people in need.
Suggested donations include canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat, macaroni and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, canned soups, brownie and cake mixes, coffee, water, powdered milk and juices.
