WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Natural Products Association (NPA) in collaboration with Virginia based information technology firm B&A delivered lunch and energy drinks to Capitol Police Officers on Thursday, April 15, 2021. Officers enjoyed sandwiches from Washington, DC Italian sub shop Grazie Grazie, and stocked up on C4 energy drinks from nutritional supplement maker and NPA member Nutrabolt.
“These brave men and women do so much to keep us safe every day we are in or around the Capitol for meetings and events, and this is just a small token of our tremendous appreciation,” said Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D., President and CEO of NPA. “Things have looked a little different around the Capitol during the pandemic and added security, but we are starting to return to normal and look forward to getting back into the halls of Congress. We would like to thank our partners B&A, Grazie Grazie, and Nutrabolt for helping to make this happen.”
“Supporting local communities has been a key part of B&A’s values since its inception in 1988,” stated Jonathan Evans, B&A President and CEO. “Amidst the challenges facing our nation’s capital this year, the United States Capitol Police have provided unwavering support and protection. Though a small gesture in comparison to their daily sacrifices, taking this great opportunity to provide them with meals as a token of our appreciation has been beyond rewarding.”
