Obama helps hand out Thanksgiving fixings to needy
By STACY A. ANDERSONAssociated Press
Obama, his wife, Michelle, daughters Malia and Sasha and his mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, dropped in on the Capital Area Food Bank, one of the largest serving the Washington area.
They dropped bundles of sweet potatoes, onions, carrots and apples into reusable bags people held open as they walked by. They also handed out small white boxes stamped with the presidential seal that contain M&M's candy.
Obama wished people a "Happy Thanksgiving," and Malia shook their hands.
It's the third straight Thanksgiving that Obama and his family have helped out at this particular food bank.
Obama was spending the holiday at the White House.
