It looks like surprises are former President Barack Obama thing. Last week Barack surprised his wife Michelle Obama during her book tour, now just one day before  Thanksgiving, Barack made an unannounced visit at a Chicago food bank to help volunteers prepare meal bags.  Keeping the spirit of “it ain’t no fun unless we all get some,” alive, Obama enlisted some of the workers from the Obama Foundation to lend a helping hand.

 In a tweet, the Chicago Food Bank showed their gratitude for Obama, they said:

Thank you to Barack Obama and Obama Foundation for joining our volunteers today at the Food Depository. We believe no one should go hungry, especially this time of year, and that’s why we’re working to address the root causes of hunger in Chicago and Cook Country.
