WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Melania Trump has delivered lunch and possibly some reassurance to people in the nation's capital who could use a helping of both.

Mrs. Trump had been making regular visits to schools, hospitals and other venues to promote her youth welfare initiative, “Be Best.”

But after the pandemic forced classrooms to close and hospitals to bar visitors, she turned to the White House kitchens for inspiration.

The first lady showed up unannounced to visit with District of Columbia firefighters and emergency medical services personnel last week.

She brought White House-prepared boxed lunches, tote bags, reusable face masks and hand sanitizer.
