ERLANGER, Ky. — The Erlanger Police Department joined the Farmers to Families program to help distribute food to families in Northern Kentucky.
Farmers to Families has been providing fresh food to families throughout the pandemic, and churches, schools and police departments have been used as pickup locations in the past. The food is often surplus items from local farms like milk, eggs and fresh vegetables.
The program delivered 52 pallets of food to the Erlanger Police Department for distribution Tuesday. Anyone from Northern Kentucky, regardless of income or address, can pickup some food.
"If someone is coming to a line that is giving food out, they're in need," Officer Charles Loudermilk with the Erlanger Police Department said. "I'd rather impact as many people as far reaches as we can than just our small community. There's so many people in need, it's an awe inspiring number when this shows up."
Distribution will be taking place at Lloyd Memorial High School at 450 Bartlett Ave. It starts at 4 p.m. and goes until 8 p.m., or until they run out of food.
