Barack Obama surprised volunteers at the Greater Chicago Food Depository, where he made an unexpected visit to help the samaritans prepare and pack food that will be distributed to those in need over the course of Thanksgiving.
Wearing a Chicago White Sox cap, and snapping on a pair of latex gloves as he joined the assembly line of food packers, Obama was his cheery self, smiling and cracking jokes with the clearly star-struck volunteers.
The food bank took to Twitter to share videos from the visit and to thank the 44th President for swinging by and helping out the community.
Thank you to @BarackObama and @ObamaFoundation for joining our volunteers today at the Food Depository. We believe no one should go hungry, especially this time of year, and that’s why we’re working to address the root causes of hunger in Chicago and Cook County. pic.twitter.com/d6YfBjvJl2— Chicago’s Food Bank (@FoodDepository) November 20, 2018
Obama also shared the video, while thanking the non-profit food bank him for letting him 'crash' their charity event.
The Obama Foundation, the organization set up by Barack and his wife Michelle, also shared some clips from the visit.
