With his inauguration just days away, President-Elect Joe Biden spent the MLK Day of Service volunteering near home.

Biden and his wife, future First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, volunteered at Philabundance in South Philadelphia Monday.

They joined an assembly line in Philabundance's parking lot and helped fill about 150 boxes with fresh fruit and non-perishables.

Philabundance provides more than 24 million pounds of food each year to those in need, including providing food to smaller community food banks.

The Bidens were joined in their service project by their daughter, Ashley Biden, their granddaughter Finnegan Biden, and Peter Neal, who is dating another Biden granddaughter.

Meanwhile, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, took part in a National Day of Service event, filling bags with produce and dry goods at Martha’s Table, a food bank in Southeast Washington, D.C.
