Cram the Cruiser to Prevent Hunger Food Drive

About the Program

Join the Parker Police Department as we Cram our Cruisers for the Parker Task Force! All donations will be used to fill the more than 120 backpacks that are provided to qualifying Parker area kids each Friday throughout the school year. 

These backpacks are filled with enough food to get kids through the weekend when they don’t have access to nutritious meals from their school. Your individual sized donations will make a difference in the life of an underprivileged child’s life, right here in Parker.

You can help by donating individual-sized food items like the ones listed below that can be included in the more than 120 backpacks each week. Please be sure to check all expiration dates before donating items. We want to insure all the food provided is safe to be shared with Parker area kids.

Cram the Cruiser has been moved to early March at the request of the Parker Task Force to help with a greater time of need for them.
