From CBS2 in Chicago:

CHICAGO (CBS) ― President-elect Barack Obama and the soon-to-be first family handed out food to the needy at a South Side church on the day before Thanksgiving.

Obama, his wife Michelle and their two daughters, Malia and Sasha, shook hands and gave holiday wishes as they handed wrapped chickens to people who had been lined up for hours at the food bank at St. Columbanus Parish, 331 E. 71st St.

...

Afterward, Obama and his family addressed an assembly of children screaming with delight at St. Columbanus Elementary School, asking them what would be eating at Thanksgiving as they applauded and cheered. One held a sign reading, "We love our Prez."

"I'm not president yet, I've been elected president," Obama said. "But I'm going to be sworn in as president on January 20th."
