Barack Obama and his family are giving back this Thanksgiving. The former president shared a photo of his family, helping out at a food bank and had an important message for everyone.

While Thanksgiving is widely perceived as the time to be grateful for our blessings, some folks also see it as a time to be a blessing to others. The Obamas belong to the latter group.

Barack, 58, took to social media in celebration of the holiday, sharing a picture of himself, former first lady Michelle, and their daughters Malia, 21, and Sasha, 18, giving out food.

If Michelle goes home with the coveted gramophone, she joins her husband in the Grammy-winning league.

The candid shot captured the 44th president shaking hands with a young girl in a black puffer jacket. Malia looked on with a smile while Michelle and Sasha interacted with others.

Barack's timely message read:

"Today, we give thanks for our blessings, give back to those around us, and enjoy some time — and turkey, and maybe a little football — with the ones we love. From the Obama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving."

It's not stated where or when the image was taken, but according to The Hill, Barack and his family have volunteered at food banks on many occasions in the past. Last year, he volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository to help prepare food for others before the holiday.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump also tweeted a Thanksgiving message, wishing all Americans "a very happy and blessed" holiday. Per HuffPost, the president traveled to his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday, to celebrate Thanksgiving.

A day before Barack's Thanksgiving post, Michelle had shared a never-before-seen family photo to mark the day.

The pic, which featured the Obama daughters looking all grown up, was reportedly taken in May before Sasha, then a high school senior, headed out for Prom.

This Thanksgiving marks the former first family's third since leaving the White House in 2017. Both Barack and Michelle have been busy with multiple projects ever since.

Michelle has published and toured her best-selling memoir, "Becoming," while her husband is currently working on his. The couple has also been involved in film and TV projects, inking a multimillion-dollar production deal with Netflix last year.

A few days ago, "Becoming" was announced as one of the contenders in the Spoken Word category at next year's Grammy Awards.

If Michelle goes home with the coveted gramophone, she joins her husband in the Grammy-winning league. Barack won the award in the same Spoken Word category back in 2006 and in 2008.
