Former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden moseyed into Dog Tag Bakery on Grace Street in Georgetown for lunch July 30.
The casually dressed duo greeted and posed for photos with the Dog Tag fellows, who are learning about baking and cooking and how to run a business at the nonprofit bakery, which was created for disabled veterans by Rev. Rick Curry, S.J., and Connie Milstein. Georgetown University helps to coordinate the program.
A crowd gathered on Grace Street in front of the bakery as Secret Service personnel looked on.
Founded in 2015 and the subject of a Georgetowner cover story, Dog Tag Bakery was ecstatic and grateful about the apparently surprise visit, writing on Twitter:
“Look who stopped by @DogTagBakery for lunch today! Thank you @BarackObama and @JoeBiden for supporting our mission of empowering veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses, and military caregivers! #BakingADifference #veterans #milspouses #caregivers.”
