CONCORD, N.H. — Concord residents will have the chance to fill a police cruiser with groceries in a spin on the traditional food drive.

The New Hampshire Food Bank is teaming up Saturday with the Concord police department to host a “Stuff-A-Cruiser” food drive. Supporters can fill the cruiser with non-glass and non-perishable food donations. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hannaford Supermarket in Concord.

A collection box will also be located at Concord police headquarters.

The event is part of Hunger Action Month, a nationwide campaign designed to encourage residents and businesses to fight hunger. According to the New Hampshire Food Bank, 10 percent of New Hampshire residents don’t know where their next meal will come from, and 13 percent of children often go hungry.
