President Obama Volunteers at Food & Friends

September 11th, a National Day of Service and Remembrance, is a special opportunity to pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors and first-responders by devoting this day to community service. On that day, we were proud and honored to have President Barack Obama join us in celebrating all who give their time and energy to improving their communities.

President Obama packed meals for our clients alongside a dozen other volunteers. His service on this day will long be remembered and is a remarkable milestone during our 25th anniversary. Since 1988, we have delivered more than 16.4 million meals. This work would not be possible without the loving support of more than 14,500 volunteers each year. We are proud to add President Barack Obama to this devoted corps of volunteers.

This is just one more reminder that every one of us can make a significant impact in the lives of many. Learn about our volunteer opportunities and how you can get started.
