NASP is proud to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank and specifically their Emergency Food Box Program. NASP will have a donation box at each meeting where members and guests can donate food to serve a crucial role of feeding hungry people in our own community in a time of crisis. The most needed items are peanut butter, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta and cereal. The box of food from each meeting will be taken directly over to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
