An Oakland woman will help first lady Michelle Obama plant the White House kitchen garden on Wednesday.

Sarah Ting is a member of Food Corps, a nationwide group that connects kids to real food and helps them grow up healthy.

She serves in the Oakland Unified School District.

The first lady invited Ting and several Food Corps volunteers to help with the garden.

The program is now in its sixth year and is part of her Let's Move campaign to improve the health of America's kids.
