Michelle Obama Volunteers at DC Soup Kitchen

Picture It: Service With a Smile

Michelle Obama volunteered at Miriam's Kitchen, a nonprofit that provides case management, housing support, and meals to homeless people in DC. Yesterday's meal was donated by the White House in a new effort to highlight the work of local nonprofits. The first lady urged Americans to donate food and, if that's out of reach, time.

Woah, woah, woah..yes, it's great that she is serving food to the homeless but why does the homeless man have a cell phone?! And where did he get the money for this?!

"The first lady urged Americans to donate food and, if that's out of reach, time." food and time should be reversed? Many programs like this are overwhelmed with those wanting to volunteer time but are not getting donations, monetary or otherwise, like they use to. At least this is what is happening in my area. Good for the first lady. She always looks so happy.

This right here is why I wish my husband and I were independently wealthy. I would LOVE to be able to volunteer my time every single day. I'm incredibly jealous of people that have this kind of time to devote to helping others. And I am incredibly impressed that the First Lady would do this.

I think this is a really positive thing. It is great they donated food and time and brought attention to the strong need for volunteering during this challenging time. I also think it was a nice surprise for people who were probably feeling pretty defeated when they were waking into the shelter. Sometimes one act of kindness can go a long way.

Kim, she's growing on me too. As much as I dislike her politics, I love watching her fashion. I also like watching her with the girls, they're a lovely family.

Tidal...I interpreted it as meaning if you can't donate food, donate time...meaning people who can't afford to donate food b/c of the recession, so they'd volunteer instead.

Good for her. At least she's trying to raise awareness for the growing need to support your local food banks. I am really impressed with her as first lady!

I will be the first to admit I did not like this woman at all during her husband's campaign, I actually liked her less than her husband, but the more I see of her the more I'm warming up to her.

Nicely done CG, :highfive: Where's the first grandma? I have visions of her puttering around the White House in a big sweater by herself waiting for the girls to come home...
