President Biden on Monday joined volunteers at a food bank in Philadelphia in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the third consecutive year he has marked the holiday at the organization.

Biden volunteered at Philabundance, a hunger relief organization in South Philadelphia. Biden chatted with volunteers and stuffed boxes of food.

“Where do you want me? the president said as he picked up a bag of apples and donned a Philabundance hat.

He was joined Monday by Cherelle Parker, the recently elected mayor of Philadelphia.

The president also volunteered at the food bank in 2021 and 2022 to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The nonprofit food bank serves the Philadelphia and Delaware Valley regions of Pennsylvania.

Other Cabinet officials were expected to participate in service projects on Monday to mark the holiday.

Vice President Harris, meanwhile, was traveling to South Carolina to deliver remarks at the South Carolina NAACP’s annual “King Day at the Dome” event.
