The First Lady at the Kitchen Garden Fall Harvest

Today, the First Lady welcomed students from Bancroft Elementary, who have been helping the White House Kitchen Garden team since the groundbreaking on the south lawn in March, as well as students from Kimball Elementary.  Together, they worked on the South Lawn of the White House this afternoon for the Fall Harvest of the White House Kitchen Garden.  Staff and volunteers from Miriam’s Kitchen, the local DC food shelter that has received multiple donations from the White House of produce and honey, were also there.  Stay tuned for an update on just how much was harvested!
