London, Mar 6 (ANI): US first lady Michelle Obama clearly believes in the saying lead by example as she was seen donning an apron and serving dinner to the homeless people in Washington DC.

Those who visited the soup kitchen, which was just a few streets from the White House, were stunned to see the President’’s wife standing with a spoon in hand behind the counter.

My job is here to serve you, Sky News quoted her as telling diners as she dished up bowls of mushroom risotto and broccoli.

A fruit salad was put together with food donations from Presidential staff.

One of the visitors, George Rivera couldn”t believe his eyes when he saw Michelle.

I never imagined this, not in a hundred years, he said.

The first lady, who said that times are tough and plenty of people need a helping hand, described Miriam’’s Kitchen as an example of what we can do as a country and a community to help folks when they are down.

She added that if people can”t afford to donate food or money then they should donate their time instead. (ANI)
