Former President Barack Obama popped in to visit volunteers at a Chicago food bank on Tuesday, helping out as the charity prepares to feed people in need on Thanksgiving. 

In a video posted Tuesday, Obama strode into the facility, prompting some exclamations from surprised volunteers who were huddled together around a long table of potatoes. The former president, clad in purple latex gloves and White Sox cap, dove in and began to help sort the tubers. 

“Thanks to the Chicago @FoodDepository team for all you do and to the volunteers who are doing great work and let me crash today,” Obama said in a tweet Tuesday night. “Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!”
