Florida Highway Patrol kicks off annual Stuff the Charger food drive

The Florida Highway Patrol has kicked off their annual “Stuff the Charger” food drive which runs from November 1 to November 30.

The food drive is a statewide effort to support local communities in the fight against hunger. From now until November 30, non-perishable food donations will be collected for food banks across Florida.

The following items are needed:

  • Canned goods: canned meats (ham, chicken, tuna), canned potatoes, carrots, corn, green beans, canned fruits, vegetables, and soup.
  • Dried goods: stuffing, boxed potatoes, rice, cornbread mix, grits, cereal, and oatmeal.
  • Other goods: nuts, peanut butter, evaporated milk, bottled water, and broth.

Anyone wishing to donate food can bring their contributions to any local Florida Highway Patrol Station, or contact a Public Affairs Officer for more information.
