TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - You don't just have to walk to help out in Tallahassee's annual Crop Hunger Walk. The Tallahassee Police Department is collecting food donations this week to support the upcoming Crop Walk on October 5th.

TPD is offering to send a uniformed officer to pick up non-perishable or canned food items from any house within city limits that donates at least one bag of food.

The Tallahassee resident who makes the biggest food donation will get the opportunity to have Chief Michael DeLeo stop by to personally pick up the donation.

You can drop off donations at the Tallahassee Police headquarters on Monroe Street.

Officer David Northway says it's important to give food to those in the community who need it. "In this day and age, it's atrocious that we actually have people that don't have enough food. Anytime that we can put our efforts into gaining some help for those people, to those in need. We all need to work together in order to do so."

TPD's efforts are all to support the annual Crop Walk held at Lake Ella.

For TPD to come to your house or pick up at donation, call 850-556-1726 or email David.Northway@talgov.com. Click here for more details
