FILE - In this June 16, 2009, file photo first lady Michelle Obama, left, and Assistant White House Chef Sam Kass, second from left, shell peas with fifth graders from Bancroft Elementary School in the kitchen of the White House in Washington, after having harvested some of the vegetables they planted in a White House garden.
