LIBERTY, Ohio (WYTV) – The Liberty Police Department held its fifth annual Fill-A-Cruiser food drive on Saturday.

Police set up a cruiser in the Giant Eagle parking lot and asked people to donate non-perishable foods. They then took all of the donations to Second Harvest Food Bank so the food could go to families in need.

If you couldn’t give food, Sergeant Michael Janovick said giving money was also very helpful.

“What we’ll do, we’ll turn that money over to Second Harvest Food Bank,” he said. “They can leverage that money many times with their corporate partners and others and provide a lot of meals.”

Last year, nearly one ton of food and $2,300 was donated, meaning Second Harvest could supply nearly 14,000 meals from what the Liberty police raised.
