President Obama and his family spent part of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday Monday making meals to be delivered to homeless shelters.
"I just want to thank everybody here for the great work they do," Obama said to workers at DC Central Kitchen in Washington.
The kitchen, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, distributes 5,000 meals a day to low-income and at-risk residents.
The president and daughter Malia could be seen filling burritos while wearing aprons with the DC Central Kitchen logo on them.
"We've got lamb ... beef with sauce ... cheese," Obama told reporters.
Other administration officials also participated in events to commemorate the Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service.
Vice President Biden joined members of the Catholic Volunteer Network to prepare hot lunches at another kitchen, So Others Might Eat.
