The burden of the Friends in Need Food Bank is 624 kilograms lighter thanks to an RCMP cruiser that was 624 kg heavier, Thursday, filled with groceries and treats for the holiday season.

Shoppers at Real Canadian Superstore in Pitt Meadows crammed the car with food and cash donations to help the RCMP’s Cram the Cruiser With Kindness fundraiser for the Friends in Need Food Bank.
