First 100 Days Roundup

The Obamas celebrated their first 100 days by enjoying their first harvest from the White House Kitchen Garden…but only after Mrs. Obama spent a few hours volunteering at Capital Area Food Bank.

The first 100 days also generated food for thought in the form of recaps and commentary across the internet. Many mentioned the White House Kitchen Garden. Here are just a few:
