What is the Nashua Soup Kitchen
& Shelter Backpacks for Back to School Program? 

The Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter’s Backpack Program provides necessary school supplies to the children in your community. The NSKS staff works diligently with our clients, of which there are nearly 5,000 children, to provide those in need with necessary school supplies in order to be successful in their school year.
