Food for the Soul

In keeping with Vatican tradition, the two leaders exchanged gifts. Obama gave the pope a seed chest custom made from reclaimed wood from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin in Baltimore that contained fruit and vegetable seeds from the White House garden. He also invited Francis to tour the garden.
