Tom DeFrank of the New York Daily News was today’s pool reporter covering Barack Obama’s visit to a food bank, after the president-elect held a news conference announcing more members of his economic team. He writes:

Exiting the podium after meeting the press, Obama was asked his plans for tomorrow and replied that he and Michelle are hosting “a whole bunch of people” at their home.

Five minutes after the press conference concluded, the President-elect left the Hilton at 10:08 a.m. and arrived at his home 11 minutes later. The motorcade departed again at 10:55 with Michelle and the girls in tow and arrived at 11:03 at Saint Columbanus Catholic Church, a South South parish that operates a food bank every Wednesday.
